Plant ID needed from Kentucky

Hello everyone, I have a small collection that I picked up on a trip to Kentucky...the area around hazard. I think its the Breathitt formation. Pennsylvanian period.  I have been in the process of Identifying them. I think I have a decent lock on some of them, but could use a little help on a few. I should add some more photos of 3 and 4. Let me know if you need anything specific (close up on a certain area, or what have you).

If them Duke boys would have been into fossil collecting, it might have kept them out of so much trouble.

True.

But I would miss the theme song playing in my head when I notice the trailer with it's loading ramps down. :)

I would say that the second one is actually Neuropteris or one of the closely related genera, based on the shape and arrangement of leaves, but I don't think it's possible to be more specific without seeing the venation more clearly.

Your first item looks like a possible lycopod cone, poorly preserved, ... something similar to Lepidostrobus.

maybe of L. lanceolatum?

I initially thought. Neuropteris, but discounted it due to the midline extending to the outer margin, as in Pecopteris.

I see- I think that it's just the blurry nature of the picture giving that impression on this piece- the other veins extending from the midvein can run all the way to the edge down the middle, along with the fold. Everything else about it says Neuropteris to me.
