Kasia you've been so very generous with your information and I am grateful. I'd be happy to share the letter with you and I will email you privately with that information.
The information you posted verifies some of what I have and other stuff is new to me.
I also have a type written "listing" of family members supposedly transcribed from a Bible that I'd be happy to share. I'm not sure it's anthing you don't already have but I'm happy to pass along the infomation.
So with regard to Reed Dickerson, you've obviously been researching him for some time. I take it there is a good chance, because as you said, "this early period has many big questions and a lot of conjecture" that we very well may never know who his parents/siblings were, right?
