[note: I believe 2 Ira CASS' may be blended, as both men with full families are enumerated in 1850, one in Michigan and the other in Maine. Both have numerous children born during the same years, one between Ohio and Michigan, the other within the state of Maine. Also my notes show Ira CASS who married Elizabeth MONLUX died October 19, 1857 and another entry cites the Ira CASS who married Diana LAUGHLIN died 1886. I belive the later date applies to the Ira CASS of Maine, not of Michigan. Research is ongoing to clarify the confusion; if you have any information to help, please contact me.
