309 machine gun battalion 78th division WWI

Hello,

I am looking for a little information, my great grandfather Lolo Hepp served 1918 - 1919. On a popular genealogical website I found him on a passenger manifest stating he was shipping out with Company A 309 machine gun battalion 78th division.

I recently found out many of the battalions took photos upon arriving back at Ft Dix in 1919. Would there be any repository that I might be able to get a copy, if such photo exists?

I have a picture of him in uniform (no markings) I believe that is late 1919 possible early 1920s. His headstone states rank of PFC. I think it would be great if I could have both his personal photo and his company photo together.

Thank you for your service , and thank you for your help.

- Hepp
