Interesting assortment of fossils

Nautiloid

Last year while fossil hunting in a creek in Chenango Forks, New York I came across an interesting looking rock. The rock was primarily made up of gastropods with a few bivalves and brachiopods. It was a very crumbly, silty rock. I believe it is upper Devonian because I’ve only ever found upper Devonian rocks at that creek but I’ve been unable to find anything close to what I found in Karl A. Wilson’s Field Guide to the Devonian Fossils of New York

I'm with Roger. You may want to double check with newer literature, as some have been reassigned as Spinplatycerids.

Your gastropods appear to belong to Platyceras.
