Dudley Lyford Cass - birth

After reviewing US census documents for Horace Cass, the younger brother of my 3rd great grandfather, Dudley Lyford Cass, I've come to the conclusion that Dudley was born in Stanstead county, Quebec Province, Canada.       Dudley's seven older siblings were also born in Stanstead county.

This resolves the discrepancies in the US census records that had listed his birthplace as either Canada, New Hampshire or Vermont.   The only accurate census was from 1850.
