Sylvester Doolittle/Catherine Gould

I am looking for information on Sylvester Doolittle who married Catherine Mary Gould daughter of Samuel A. Gould & Catherine Willard Porter. Sylvester was born in NY and was the son of Joel Doolittle & Amelia Wetmore. He & Catherine were married in Utica,NY in 1829. They moved to Oswego,NY and Sylvester built & ran Doolittle House and built ships for the Erie Canal. He developed a deep mineral springs company and amassed a fortune. I believe he adopted one of his nephews William. I have found quite alot on Sylvester & his family-have photos of their grave monuments and other headstones of Doolittles buried nearby. I have photos of Sylvester Doolittle from various histories printed about Oswego,NY. What I would really like to find is more information on his wife Catherine Mary Gould & her family. Is anyone researching the Gould/Doolittle connection? If you are I would like to correspond with you. I have a list of Doolittles buried in Riverview Cemetery ( I think that's the name)in Oswego,NY and will check for your Doolittle if anyone is interested.
