Clifford Ross Brayton's "Brayton Family History" book is available at Brigham Young University's online library at http://contentdm.lib.byu.edu/ to read, search, or download.
It is so important to keep track of the correct dates of same named family members. I've seen websites that have the dates of an aunt for the daughter named for her, even though anyone who read it carefully can see that a child cannot be born before the parents! It's all about attention to detail in order to pass the family history on correctly to the next generation.
By the way, after 5 years of searching, I have never found anything further on Rebecca Read/Reed, other than what is in this book.
