In this discussion, it's stated: "There is a minor tractate in the Talmud called Brit Millah which lists all the people born circumcised."

Can anyone point me towards a copy of this tractate (which doesn't appear in Bar Ilan's list of minor tractates) or towards other sources which contain a list of people born circumcised/ more recent sources which discuss this list?

It's in Avot De-Rabbi Natan 2:5: Born circumcised were Adam, Seth, Noah, Shem, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, the wicked Balaam, Samuel, David, Jeremiah and Zerubbabel.
