- Bill McIsaac poses in front of his log cabin with the five fish he has caught.
- Bills parents were Mary (nee. Poitras) and John McIsaac, married in Mattawa in 1871. According to Marion Sheedy's (2005) unpublished Autobiography entitled, Growing up in Bissett Creek, the McIsaacs were the first family to settle in Bissett Creek. Mrs. Mayme McIsaac, Bill's wife, was the Postmistress. Either Bill or his wife would bring the mail bags to and from the train station. Bill was a trapper who worked for the Forestry in the summer and he loved to play the fiddle.
Bill McIsaac has been identified in a photograph c. 1918 where he appears much younger. This photograph is believed to have been taken approximately twenty years later.
- Writing likely added years later.
