Hello! I'm seeking information about my great-great grandparents. Since what I have is very limited, ANY information will be greatly appreciated!

This is what I do know (family oral/written history):

Louis Albert Ephrem Turcotte was born 28 May 1871 in St.Germaine, Quebec, Canada. He married Josephine Chowinard/Chouinard (b. 1876, d. 1959) in 1892 in East Angus, Quebec. He died in 1951.

They came to the U.S. (settled in North Dakota) in 1906.

The oldest of their children was Josephine* Marie Turcotte (b. 1893, d. 1962), who was my great-grandmother. She married Dosithe Joseph Lagasse (b. 1883, d. 1940) in 1912. One of Dosithe & Josephine's 16 children was my grandmother, Stella* Marie Lagasse (b. 1935 in Rolla, North Dakota).

Louis Turcotte/Josephine Chouinard's children: Josephine*, August, Laura, Albert, Eugene, Herman, Antoinette (d. 6 mo.), Louis, Emil, Roderic, Stella, Ovella, Margaret, Marie, Dosithe (d. 5 mo.), Andrew, Roland, Lawrence, Bertha, and 4 still births.

Dosithe Lagasse/Josephine Turcotte's children: Henry, Emil, Omer, Arthur, Marie, Eva, Zenon, Delia, Laura, Alice, Louis, Semon, Albert (d. infant), Stella*, Armand (d. infant), and Edward (Joe).

Thanks in advance for any insight you can share!
