Private Edmund Duranceau, 312th Regiment

My grandfather was Edmund Duranceau. He was a private in the 312th, 78th Division, WW1, in Lorraine. Joined the Army at Camp Anderson, Indiana, and then assigned to 78th at Camp Dix. One of the few non New Jersey, non New Yorkers. He claimed he was used as a French translator as his family spoke French at home in Michigan. He told me French wine was 1 franc a bottle. I would like any document or roster showing his name in the 312th 78th. I have been to the St. Mihiel. Cemetary and saw names of 78th KIA. His Army file was one burned up in Missouri, so I can't get that. Any help is appreciated.

BTT.
Same question asking about existence of the Roster.
My Grandfather's records also burned up in that 1970 Missouri fire.
