PARMENTIER, Auguste Henry (par-mon-tyay), French historian, born in Sancerre in 1752; died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, about 1816. He was the son of poor laborers, but, having rescued a clergyman from a mad bull, obtained a fellowship in a seminary. He was ordained a priest in 1786, and stationed in Paris, but, refusing in 1791 to take the oath of allegiance to the civil constitution of the clergy, he emigrated to the United States, where at times he was forced to earn his living as a laborer. He became afterward secretary to a wealthy resident of Montreal, who bequeathed him a competency in 1799. He then devoted his time to historical researches, and published "Histoire des pionniers francais darts l'Amerique du Nord" (3 vols., Philadelphia, 181.2) and " Histoire de la colonic francaise en Louisiane" (2 vols., 1815).
