4, 5, and 6 look like shells and maybe a coral, to me. :unsure: 

 

Cropped and brightened:

#1/2 is indeed a small tiger, Galeocerdo latidens.

#3/4 may be from the genus Carcharhinus, but I'd need a better picture

The other two items I agree with Fossildude19: they are mollusk shell fragments

If the first tooth is from Purse it's most likely Pachygaleus.

When it comes to Eocene/Paleocene teeth, I'll definitely defer to those who know them better than I. 

Thanks for clarifying

 

With the new photos, I retract my previous suggestion of Carcharhinus for the 2nd tooth. The root Is all wrong, and the blade seems to recurve.  Possibly a tiger shark tooth with a chunk missing from the distal area?  I'd be interested in others' thoughts.
