Hello, if anyone could give me a general idea of what these are, that would be super helpful. Thanks so much & these are from east tn near the smoky mountains or Appalachia

I don't think they are bones,  need clearer close ups and please give size reference.  The largest one, bottom right, looks like it could have a fossil.

No they've most definitely got a sandstone layer on the outside of them that comes off after just a lil bit scrubbing. But once the sandstone layer comes off its extremely smooth. It literally feels & looks like bone that I've seen at museums of fossilized bones. But I will send better pics of closer up detail. Thank u for all of your answers. But it does look like sandstone bc there is a layer of it but paper thin & then whats underneath most definitely doesn't have any type of granules of sand in it. So your both probably right. Give me just a min & ill post the new pics.
