Since you remark on his burial site, I would assume that you have accessed the ABMC page in this forum.
From information posted there concerning his organization, date of death and burial, we determinne that he came from NY state.
This division was inducted into federal service, 16 Sep 40, at Fort Jackson, S.C., and was comprised of personnel in the N.C., S.C., Georgia and TN National Guard.
From this, I assume that he joined it as a replacement, as many of us did.
Campaigns which preceed the time of his death are:
Normandy (D-Day +8), 6 Jun 44 / 24 Jul 44 Ardennes-Alsace (Bulge), 16 Dec 44 / 24 Jan 45 Northern France, 25 Jul 44 / 14 Sep 44 Rhineland, 15 Sep 44 / 11 May 45.
Stanton's "WW II Order of Battle" indicates that the division reached the Inde River (Belgium), 28 Nov 44, with the capture of Altkir, and cleared most of the region between the Inde and Roer Riers by 17 Dec 44.
It must have been this action that he was lost.
The 39th ID was attached to US Ninth Army, 22 Oct 44 / 17 Dec 44, which could provide other clues leading to his demise.
Sorry that this is brief, but I am pressed for time right now.
