Your chronology looks close, with Psusennes I. I have something different.

Solomon

David and Solomon are a little interesting because they mark the end of the archaeologically proven characters in the bible.

With David, we have a Tel Dan Stele(which is dated a little too late), and official clay seals:

We also have a synchronization point with Solomon's successors, Jeroboam I/Rehoboam, being contemporary with Shishak(Shoshenq I).

Because of this synchronization point, Solomon should be contemporary with Shishak's immediate predecessors, Siamun and Psusennes II. This timeline is about 60 years later. The near name connection with Siamun and Solomon in this later timeline is certainly intriguing.
