Searching for info on the Rochester, New York - Oldfield families.I have a hunch they may be related to my Oldfield family.Does the following sound familiar to anyone?

I'm trying to track my William Oldfield (born abt 1833-1838...depending on which census you read) from Ireland.I believe he immigrated in the 1850s.My relative seems to remember the family was related to people in Rochester, NY.Therefore, I wonder if there is an Ireland.....Oldfield.....Rochester connection to my William..... and Bridget and John Oldfield of Rochester?
In the 1870 census, it appears there are very few (less than 10) Oldfield family members born in Ireland living in the US.From what I can gather, it's basically one from Missouri and then Henry Oldfield from Ireland living in New York City (incidentally, my William lived in New York City for about 50 years). And, then Bridget and John Oldfield from Ireland living in Rochester, NY.All info is appreciated.
