You wrote: "Having read Cooper's novel, and finding so little about the relationships between the main characters to be the same as Mann's portrayal of these characters, I don't find it useful to use Cooper's writings in explaing the relationships we see in the film."
If that's the case... and from my online glimpses at various chapters... I might postpone my supremely el-cheapo act of printing out the novel online.
Perhaps I ought to leave LOTM the movie as a separate tale from the novel, and mail-order the book about Hawkeye's real-life forefathers.

How many out there have read Fenimore's original?
