Fw190 losses 13 March 1945 Remagen

I have been researching the 474th FG when they provided air cover over the Remagen bridgehead during March 1945. The Group flew daily missions in multiple hourly shifts that provided dawn to dusk coverage.
In particular, I have been researching the actions that took place on 13 March 1945.
During the fifth mission of the day, the 429th FS encountered an estimated seven Fw190s attempting to bomb the Ludendorff bridge. The 429th FS made claims of 1 destroyed, 2 probably destroyed, and 3 damaged. A victory claim was awarded to Captain Joseph Miller.
During the sixth mission an hour later, the 430th FS encountered eight Fw190s attacking the bridge. Based on limited accounts I've read, I believe these were Fw190D-9s of 3./JG 2. The 430th FS made claims of 4 destroyed and one probable. Individual victory credits were awarded to Captain Clyde Fox, 1Lt. Edward Jones, and 1Lt. Harold Ogger for a total of 3 destroyed.
Unfortunately, I cannot find any detailed references that document the participating Luftwaffe units and their associated losses for that day. Can anyone provide details of the Fw190s lost in the Remagen area on 13 March 1945?
Many thanks in advance.
Cheers, Gary Koch (474th FG Association President/Historian)

He was shot down on 11 March rather than the 13th.
