Hello - I have a transcription for the stone you've identified as "text in german" near the bottom of the web-page. 
 
"Thine parents tears fall on the graves on this hill.  Thine brothers and sisters sigh.  We wish only goodness to you brother."
 
FYI, the stone marks the Biederman graves (August and Elisabeth's)
 
Will this info qualify me for a picture of the Smith headstones?
