It's very possible that it is derived from the name LOISELLE. According to OUR FRENCH-CANADIAN ANCESTORS, by Thomas J. Laforest, the surname LOISEL has the following variations:
CHOISY, CLOISEL, LOISEAU, LOISELET, LOISELLE, LORSIL, LOYSEL, SINODE, SINOT, VENET AND VINET.
LOISELLE is also CAMPBELL, LISOTTE, LOISEL, LOISELL, LOIZEL, and WISELL.
My great,great,great-grandfather, Constant LOISELLE, was born 1808 in Marieville, Quebec. In 1850 he was in Michigan, but after that I haven't been able to locate him. On his daughter's death certificate in 1912, it gave his name as JOHN WISELL. What information do you have on your WISELLS?
