On there is a Barrett family tree with your John Whaley on it.
This is what information it has:

Birth: 17 Dec 1833 Utica Oneida NY
Death: 17 Mar 1923 Onaway, Presque Isle, Michigan US
Burial: Onaway, Presque Isle MI
Marriage: Nancy Ann Jones, 1876 [ no source]
1906 Brandon Manitoba[1906 census]?
1910 Onaway Ward 1, Presque Isle Michigan [1910 US census]
Alonzo Whaley & Maria Tanner
Mary Jordon, no dates
one son Arthur James, 1892-1958
This entry is confusing as Arthur James is entered below with mother Nancy Jones.

Amy Ann Ryan Wells
Sons- Fred & Harry [no dates]

Nancy Ann Jones
Children with above
John Edward, 1876-1929, Kent County, Ont
Annie Adeline Elizabeth, 1878-1899, Ont
Theodore, 1880-1960, Kent County, Ont
Herbert Solomon, 1882-1947, Port Lampton Ont
Charles, 1884-1958, Lambton County Ont
Simon Poland Polan, 1886-1977, Kent County ONt
Westley Noble, 1888-1979, Michigan USA
Henry, 1890-1893, no pob given
Arthur James, 1892-1858, Michigan USA
Thomas Elmer, 1897-1898, no pob, death Tuscola Michigan.

On Charles' birth rego it gives mother as Anna Maria Jones. Nancy is very often just a nickname.

1871 census Sombra Bothwell
John, 37, b USA, farmer,Methodist, Dutch
Anna M, 21, b Ireland
George H, 4, Ont
Frederick, b Sept, 7/12, Ont

Although the above tree says he was in Brandon Manitoba on 1906 census I cannot find him.
What comes up on the tree on 1906 census is for a Samuel Whaley,51, wife Emily 51, and son Herbert, 24. All born Ontario.
No mention at all of John and his family.

I don't have access to US census for lookup on Alonzo.
