Elliot - Thanks for the response and hints. I have the morning report for M Company, 157th Infantry Regiment showing my uncle's admission and death as well as the War Dept's Report of Death and Report of Burial. The latter shows he was admitted to the 93rd Evac hospital in Munich with a cerebral contusion and he died their the same day, May 19, 1945. I've an account with Ancestry.com but had no luck finding the record. I'm thinking the Ancestry records may only include inpatient records and it is possible my uncle was triaged and died in the emergency room.
Also, are the surgeon and hospital records for the ETO evac hospitals all in College Park? Thanks. John

Mike - Thanks for the response. I had inquired with NPRC in St Louis and they responded my uncle's records were lost in the fire. John
