Hello mclaussner84
On your Nightingale Tree - Great! Work! -BTW!! Tons of Documentation!!

You asked for inscriptions because "the shadows on them makes it a little difficult to read" using the *New* Find A Grave is marvelous for this! as it has a scroller and you can "View Original" and a new site pops up and you can enlarge it to your heart's content by holding Control +Key!! Love It! (no, I'm not crazy!)

At any rate, while transcribing the stones, (which I submitted to the memorial creator for inclusion on the memorial), saw that many of the children were not linked. It is a favorite pastime - linking the memorials - 'cause when your Ancestry Tree gets a "Shaking Leaf" as a hint it will include the parents as hints.

Okay, I'm not obsessive - as this information indicates - but I had fun doing this as a diversion from my own research. Any information I found has been submitted to the person maintaining the memorial. inlcuding DOB, DOD, Locations, Links, Inscriptions.
Hope this helps!! A lot of it you already have. happy hunting! Sue
