Found this one in the eroded limestone. It came out in two pieces. I believe it to be a clam. You can see it dimensionaly through the top.

 

I'm still going to clean it up further.

Yes, very definitely a bivalve.  Looking at forms from the same age in eastern Ohio, this could be either a Phestia or Wilkingia.  Hard to tell without being able to see the hinge teeth.  But those two have this shape and the concentric ridges.  Its somewhere to start.

After seeing examples of Wilkingia, I'm leaning towards that one. I removed some more matrix, and now it's three pieces. I'll post more photos soon.

 

I have to refer to Ohio plates often. :)
