Dear Mr. Daniels,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Compiled Data on Casualties of the American Expeditionary Forces by State or United States Possession, 1917 - 1919 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office (Record Group 407) that includes the file unit World War I Casualties Louisiana. This file has been digitized and can be viewed online through the Catalog.
We also located 3 series titled Name Files of Dead and Severely Wounded Casualties of Various Organizations in the American Expeditionary Forces, 1918 - 1918; Name Files of Dead and Severely Wounded Casualties of Infantry Divisions in the American Expeditionary Forces, 1918 - 1918; and Name Files of Men in the American Expeditionary Forces Reported as Missing in Action or Taken Prisoner, 1918 - 1918 in the Records of the American Expeditionary Forces (World War I) (Record Group 120). Plus, we located a series Compiled Data on Casualties of the American Expeditionary Forces by Non-Divisional Organization, 1917 - 1919 in Record Group 407. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at email@example.com. The RDT2 staff also can assist you with U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps casualty records should you be interested in including sailors and marines.
You may be interested in Soldiers of the Great War (Washington, 1920), which is a three-volume publication listing soldiers who died in Europe during World War I. Entries are arranged alphabetically by State from which the soldier served. Within each State, the entries are arranged under type of casualty: Killed in Action, Died of Disease, Died of Wounds, and Died of Accident. Under each type of casualty, the entries are arranged according to rank: commissioned officers, non-commissioned officers, miscellaneous ranks, and privates. The entries include only the names of the casualties and their hometowns. These volumes include miniature photographs of some of the persons named in the lists. These volumes have been filmed on a single reel of 35mm microfilm and RDT2 can provide a copy on DVD for $125. Alternatively, you can view the publication for free on HathiTrust at https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/006066168

We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Many thanks. I looked all over for this. Exactly what I was looking for! Don’t know why I could not locate it, it just never showed in my searches.
FYI, I am parsing all the OCR Text files into my SQL database and making it all searchable in the web browser, and then linking to pictures of soldiers in Soldiers of the Great War and to the OCR text files of that publication (Vols 1, 2 and 3). As I live in Texas I started there and have that state pretty well completed. I snipped the pictures and link them to the individual soldiers record – however the data there is muddled or ambiguous sometimes, so I am checking the War Dead records where the unit and date of death are also recorded
Then I link this all to my Family Tree System which in turn is linked to my cemeteries system so can tie everything together.
Anyway, once again, many thanks for the links in your email. Really appreciate it
