In a chapel at a cemetery in Ypsilanti, Michigan (west of Detroit and near Ann Arbor) are several non-pictorial Tiffany windows, some have been damaged over the years. But....there are TWO round windows with the little girl faces that I know similar windows are in probably 3 or 4 churches/chapels. Can someone help with where these other churches are? Thanks.

Possibly you mean a design based on the Joshua Reynolds painting:

The one closest to you that I know of immediately is:

Emmanuel Episcopal, Hastings, MI (Wightman Memorial)
https://www.michiganstainedglass.org/collections/window.php?id=208-790-9171

Some other examples, first stand-alone:

St Joseph's, Troy, NY:

St Christopher's, Winter Harbor, ME:

Then some as part of Tiffany Ascension windows (there are many more than the below):

St Mark's, August, ME:

First Baptist, Bangor, ME:

Trinity Episcopal, Newark, OH:

Here's a better picture of the Emannuel Episcopal window - I took it in 2005.
