Constant Parent (dit Parault), son of Jean-Baptiste Parent (dit Parault) and Isabelle Palin (dit Dabonville), was born on the 17th of September 1828, in St-Philippe (Laprairie), Quebec, Canada.

Constant immigrated to the US in 1848 (see 1900 US Census) and settled in Troy, NY (1850 US Census) where he worked as a brick-maker. Constant met Edwidge Louisa Fiset, a Canadian who immigrated to the US with her parents in 1839 (see 1900 US Census). They married (date & place unknown) and had eight children between 1854 and 1877. While living in Chazy, NY (1860 US Census), Constant enlisted (7/23/62) to fight in the Civil War with Co. B, 118th NY INF unit and mustered out in Richmond, VA (6/13/65).
