Who was the Frist German Soldier died in Would War II?

The information I know, the frist German soldier died in Would War II was von Schmerling. He lost his life in Battle of Shanghai between China and Japan. During that time he was a counselor of Chinese army.

I am not sure about it that right? So I just want to affirm this.

Thank you a lot.

I wish that I could be more specific, but, a Mr. Christoph Schlicter, the present editor of the Tolzer Kurier, Bad Tolz , published a book which shows , complete with photos, the unfortunate soldier who was 'officially' crediteded by the then Nazi government as being the 'first' german soldier to die for the Reich in WW2. He was a native of Bad Tolz.
