Ladies and Gentlemen:
Your page for Lieutenant Edward de Paschalis mentions that you are actively seeking additional information about him. In looking for some information on a relative, I came across a source which mentions him: The History of the 105th Regiment of Engineers, Divisional Engineers of the “Old Hickory” (30th) Division, compiled by Willard P. Sullivan and Harry Tucker (New York: George H. Doran Company, 1919). There is a photo and brief sketch of his time with the 105th on page 372. He was Mentioned in Division Orders, but did not die in action; he died in the influenza pandemic.
