Very cool finds. I would agree that F is a molar of a canine, and that the very last one is a partial mammoth tooth. I think G may be from a Bison. I am sure there will be others that can help.

A might be part of a beaver tooth

N might be partial whale tooth

and maybe a whale tooth for O really hard to say bc it is so worn

K beaver tooth maybe

A and K beaver incisors.

C beaver cheek tooth.

 

Just guessing but they look rodent to Me and the only rodent I know of that has that size is the giant beaver.

Specimen B-B4 looks to be a mammoth tusk fragment, considering its shape and the angles between the Schreger lines (in the cross section)  lower than 95 degrees. I don't know if can be narrowed down to the species level.
