Nice finds! Your unknown is not a nautilus,  but the gastropod Bembexia.

Thanks! Couldn't find anything like it in my one field guide. My personal library is lacking in Devonian references at the moment! Got any favorites to suggest?

David Linsley’s classic on Devonian Fossils of NY is good, although dated so some of the taxons have changed. Carl Wilson’s field guide is a more recent text.

Wilson's is the one I have. I've heard of Lindsey's, but haven't found a copy yet. Taxonomy changes, but as long as one has an old name it is usually possible to find an update, if you know where to look.

The photo on the left of unknown brachiopods includes Spinulicosta spinulicosta, a spiny Strophomenid. All of my specimens come from Cole Hill.

Nice finds!  I especially like the gastropod-crinoid holdfast association - it's a beauty!

I'm just getting started with sorting, too. here's a triolobite roller popper in there somewhere. We visited several sites that weekend, then ran off to South Dakota for more. It'll be months before I work my way through all of this year's expeditions!
