Oldfield family in New York

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?

1860 Rochester, NY
Bridget Oldfield 53 head of household born in Ireland
William " 19 born in Canada
Thomas " 22 born in Canada

1870 Rochester, NY
Thomas Oldfield 33 Canada
Maria 33 NY
William H. 11 NY
Frank 7 NY
Minnie 5 NY

1870 Rochester NY
Bridget 63 Ireland
Nicholas 28 Canada

1870 Rochester, NY
John Oldfield 40 Ireland
Margaret 39
Thomas 12
John 10
Joseph 8
Mary B. 5
George B. 1

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.
