Goold Hoyt was born Nov 16, 1769 in Norwalk, CT, the son of Goold and Elizabeth Dimon Hoyt. He married Sabina Sheaff, daughter of Henry and Sabina Lydig Sheaff on Jan 19, 1809 and they became the parents of 6 children, Emily Esther Hoyt Sears, Lydig Monson Hoyt, Goold Hoyt, Sabina Hoyt Redmond, Henry Sheaf Hoyt and Mary Augusta Hoyt, who died in infancy. He died in New York City on July 22, 1842.
He purchased a vault in the Marble Cemetery in 1830. About it, the website: http://marblecemetery.org states: "In response to fears about yellow fever outbreaks, recent legislation had outlawed earth graves, so marble vaults the size of small rooms were built ten feet underground in the excavated interior of the block bounded by Second Avenue, Second Street, Third Street and the Bowery. Access to the 156 family vaults was by the removal of stone slabs set below the grade of the lawn. Vaults are in pairs; there are no catacombs or passages connecting them. Markers were never placed on the ground; instead, marble plaques set into the Cemetery's long north and south walls give the names of the families interred nearby."
From the book, 'America's successful men of affairs', "Goold Hoyt was a merchant in the East India and China trade in the early part of the 19th century. He was the owner of ships (partner in the firm, Hoyt & Tom) and one of the founders of the Merchants' Exchange National Bank. He was one of the vestrymen of Grace Church, who advocated moving the church to Broadway at 10th Street, and was interested in old St. Paul's Church, in Norwalk, CT, where a monument was erected in his memory by the parishioners."
