Info at Ancestry.com puts Walter married to Angela Saucier with the children you name, but I can't find him at home with his parents before marriage. . maybe Ortego name badly misspelled, so it would be hard to find. .
Melinda Ortego Loustalot
Opelousas Ortego's. .
descended from Lansi. .
Ancestry.com has a Walter Ortego living with widowed mother Armena Ortego in 1910 with sister Annette and brother Abbey. This may be Walter's mother and the death certificate may give info on HER parents. .
No info yet on Walter's dad, but I am still looking. .
Wow, thank you so much for the reply.
I have just begun to investigate my family
and am not skilled with this website.
I was born April 1952.
When I was a little girl he was alive in Plaucheville.
I don't know exactly when he died.
I will go to the web address you provided and poke around.
