Some comments, the way I see it, after my documented research:
Paul's letters: 1 Thessalonians (50), 1 Corinthians (53-55), 2 Corinthians (55-56), Philippians (53?-56/57?), Philemon (56), Galatians (56), Romans (57).
All letters, except Philemon, have interpolations. The Corinthians And Philippians letters are, for each, a combination of three different letters. Philemon & one of the Philippians letter are genuine prison letters.
At least, one other Corinthians letter got "lost".
Depends on OT, Philo of Alexandria and 'Hebrews" & its author (most likely Apollos of Alexandria).
54. Depends on Philo and reacting to one of the Corinthians letters (the first one).
57?-65? Depends on Philemon.
60?-65? (prior to 70). Reaction against Paul's preaching? probably.
70-71. Likely depends on Paul' letters but not his whole preaching. Depends also on Peter's testimony.
~81. Depends on some of Paul's letters, Mark & Hebrews.
81-93. Depends on Mark and Q and James and 1 Clement.
75?-85? Depends on Hebrews.
~80? Depends on Paul's letters.
81-93. Depends on Mark & Q and Josephus' Wars and 1 Clement.
A few years after Luke. Depends on Luke, Josephus' Wars and Paul's companions testimonies.
~95? (as an Ebionistic document still without the later Christian additions). Depends on Matthew.
Written in stages from ~85 up to ~105. Depends on Mark, Luke, possibly Acts & Hebrews & Paul's letters.
97. Depends on Matthew, possibly Luke & Acts.
~90/95? Depends on Matthew.
End of 1st century. Depends on 1 Thessalonians.
End of 1st century. Depends on Colossians and probably some of Paul's letters.
That's it for 1st century known Christian literature.
a) By "depends on", I meant the author knew and used prior literature or testimonies from a little bit to a lot.
b) The final Q considerably depends on Mark, but also features a few prior eyewitnesses' testimonies (about Jesus' sayings).
