The Pauline writer did refer to earlier material. The Pauline writings refer to far more earlier material than all the other non-Pauline Epistles. The Pauline Corpus was a product of the Septuagint, the Later Gospels and Acts.

1. 1 Cor. 15
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received , how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried , and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures

2. 1 Cor 11.
23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: 24 And when he had given thanks , he brake it, and said , Take , eat : this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped , saying , This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye , as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

3. 1 Corinthians 14:18 KJV
I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all.

4. 2 Corinthians 11:33 KJV
And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.

5. Galatians 4:4 KJV
But when the fulness of the time was come , God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law

6. Galatians 2:20 KJV
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live ; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

7. Galatians 2:7 KJV
But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me , as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter

8. Romans 1:3 KJV
Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh..

9. Philippians 2
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation , and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.

10. Romans 1:16 KJV
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth ; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

11. Galatians 2:1 KJV
Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also.

12. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 KJV
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

You make a very good argument here for Paul's letters agreeing in places with Acts and the Gospels, but that might lead to a variety of other conclusions!
