My Parenteau grandfather was adopted; origin fm Maine brought to Ontario

Hello fellow Parenteaus!
Hoping someone can help! I don't have very much information on my grandfather, Renald Parenteau. He was given up for adoption as a boy to work on a farm I believe is how the story goes... If I remember correctly, his mother's name is Amanda Parenteau... do not know his father's name. He has (as far as I know) a sister. I am writing to hopefully find out some history for my curiosity as well as medical reasons. I believe the story goes that my great grandfather was extremely tall and thin, and my great grandmother (Amanda) was very petite. He had the nickname Bizoutte for her.
Does anyone know anything about this? My immediate family has found the Parenteau crest, as well as info that we originated from a cognac region of France... I would love to know more about where I come from! My grandfather is a very distinguished man; I am proud to be of his lineage. Can anyone help me? My email is angiemarie24@yahoo.com
Thanks so much!
