With regard to the date of Joseph Knight’s reminiscences, note that Knight references “Book of Covenants page 163.” This matches up with the 1835 Doctrine and Covenants (see here). It would appear that at least part of the document was written in 1835 or later.

Isn't the bigger bombshell the discovery that one of the Knight children was called Nahum?

Wherein it says:
Page 5, line 9 wrote:the privilege of translating again as in Book of Covenants page 163

Note also another reference to the Book of Covenants:
Page 7, line 9 wrote:Oliver Reviewed a Commandment which is in Book of Covenants Page 174

Great googely-moogely.

Nahum was about 9 years older than Joseph Smith.

Good catch. I see that Knight also references Book of Covenants Page 177.

Uh, it sounds like there's a missing page and they're just guessing what it is. It could be a First Vision account, or it could be treasure digging, or an unusual version of the Moroni story, or anything else. There's no actual evidence of what was on the page(s).

How is a guess a "bombshell"?

Well, I think it's a bombshell because it shows that something is missing. This is First Presidency material, information written about the founder of the Church and it seems to be commissioned by Smith himself. There are not many hands that have held those documents since it was first penned. The only hands I can think of are those under direct authority of the First Presidency.

Where is the missing page(s)?

Why is it missing?

Agreed. Could be anything. Bombshell would be something not nothing that could possibly be something. The first vision story might not have even been imagined by that point.
