Question
I'm researching my Grandfather, George J. Wheeler, Jr. who served with 112th Engineers from May 17,1917 to April 11,1918 as an enlisted man & with 526th Engineers as a 2nd Lt. until May 26,1919. My initial research on these 2 units is not turning up much. What can you find? Thank you.

Answer
Dear David,
         The 112th Engineers was attached to the 37th Infantry Division (which was a National Guard division) and listed below are books on this unit:

*Brief History And Roster of Company B, 112 Engineers, USA, Published in 1919.

*Burdick, Roy-Field Training of 112th Engineers from the Military Engineer dated November/December, 1926 Pages 496-498.

*Company A of the 112th U.S. Engineers with the American Expeditionary Forces in France and Belgium, 1918-1919 Published in 1919.

There is no information on the 526th Engineers because no unit with that designation ever existed. It may be a misprint.
