309th AT Company

My grandfather(Kenneth Foss) was a gunner in the AT Co. of the 309th. I'm trying to learn as much as I'm able regarding his whereabouts during December of '44 through 1945. I have his copy of "Men of Diehard". Within the pages he had circled 27 names of men I assume to be his platoon. I'm listing their names and cities in hope that someone may have more information than I do regarding AT Co's movements.

Jim Moulder(Cumming, GA), Stanley Ostrowski(Taftville, CT),Dacosta Cellon Jr.(Gainesville, FL), John SElph(Val Dosta,GA), Gerald Callahan(Chicago,IL),Jack Durkee(Chester, IL), Edward Elliott(Oregon, IL), Kenneth Hill(Marseilles, IL), Henry Paris(Milton,IA), Gerald Hileman(Clyde,KS), Kenneth Miller(Topeka,KS), Joseph Blasioli - medic(Pittsfield,MA), Francis LaValley(Chicopee,MA), Everett Teal(Haverhill,MA), Kenneth Foss(Preston,MN), Jack Svor(Montevideo,MN), Kenneth Collins(West Middlesex,PA), James Grew(Croyden,PA), Floyd Kimble(Deep Valley,PA), Gregory Lahowiak(Pittsburgh,PA), Alfred Stober(Johnstown,PA), Glenn Turner(Phoinixville,PA), Paul Rhodes(Luray,WA), Robert Weatherly(Norene, WA), Juan Casas(Rio Hando,TX), George Ficocello(Cumberland,WI), Harold Franz(Milwaukee,WI)

At some point he was reassigned to the 115th infantry regiment of the 29th Division. I believe AT Co. was reassigned to occupation duty in Berlin? Does anyone know any of the individuals above or more info. regarding AT Company? Thank you.
