Who is Joseph Bissonnette and Why Do I Have a Photo of Him?

Seriously, I don’t know.  Found this in with some photos of Hydra’s family that probably date to the late 1800s.  I did a very cursory Google search and found some interesting possibilities.   Not sure if he’s part of the family, though.

Does that look like a sledge he’s standing in front of?

    Thanks, Markustoday.
    MarkHunter – It was a hard, hard crossing. 😉 I think that’s a pipe in his mouth.

    Old photos can be such a mystery! He looks like an interesting and enterprising man. Sure hope you can track this guy down…I’m hoping he’s a relative!

    At least {1} of the Joseph Bissonnette’s was a Fur-trader during the 1800’s. please feel free to email me for more info.

      I’ll try… I need to find the photo and that will take me a while. Do you know anything about Joseph Bissonette? I’ll need your address.
