Hello Victoria, I am also searching for Louis Parent, father of Eleanor Parent. Eleanor was was born in St.Louis in 1877. Louis Parent married Mary Dashney in St.Louis . I have seen their marriage record, but it is now misplaced, and it did not include his age. Family lore is that there was a connection to Canada somewhere through him. His daughter moved to Tacoma and her son seemed to have relatives through the Parent line in Montana in 1930. Kenneth Parent was living there at that time.
I do not know if Louis Parent had any other children with Mary Dashney, and I also do not know his parents' names or their birth location.Do you have anything?
