Joseph Dorsineau Ortego m. 1833 Cephise Landreneau

According to family records I am descended from Sophese Docille Desano Ortego (b. about 1834, d. 1868-70) who was married to Joseph Hamilton (b. 1827 Opelousas, m. 2nd Sarah Elizabeth Sweet about 1869-70). In looking at Father Hebert's Southwest Louisiana Records it seems most likely from names and dates that Sophese was the daughter of Joseph Dorsineau Ortego and Cephise Landreneau who married in Opelousas in 1833. Indeed Southwest Louisiana Records lists a daughter of this couple named Celise (variant spelling?) Ortego born 28 June 1834. If I can clearly identify Joseph Dorsineau Ortego and Cephise Landreneau as the parents of Sophese Docille Desano Ortego I can get back a number of generations. Here's how they would go:

Joseph Dorsineau Ortego son of Joseph Marie Ortego and Marie Guillory (m. 1814). Joseph Marie Ortego son of Joachim Ortego and Marie Soto y St. Denis. Marie Guillory daughter of Pierre Guillory of Mobile and Marie Josephe Fontenau. Pierre Guillory son of Joseph Guillory and Marie LaCase. Marie Josephe Fontenau daughter of Phillip Fontenaut and Marie Brignac.

Cephise Landreneau daughter of Joseph Landreneau and Helene Juneau.
