More from Montour trip

My 6 year old son and I found lots of fossils just looking through the rubble on the surface yesterday during our first ever trip to the site yesterday.  We've identified many of the bivalves we found, and found both crinoid stem cross sections and profiles. We're stumped by a few, however, and would like some help.

What is the age of this stuff?  Here are my ID's... from the top:  Brachiopod, Horn Corals, Orthoceras type thing, and maybe a coral.

Devonian (Mahantango Fm). 

 

Based on the the growth lines, the brachiopod *might* be Eodevonaria or a Devonochonetes sp. (which in the Mahantango are much bigger than in similar formations).

Another possibility on the brachiopod is Protoleptostrophia sp. 

Neat finds. :)
