Sadly where I found these two rocks, is currently under lots of water (near Jasper County, Mo).

Looks like layered rock, dirt, minerals, with shells and other fossils. 

 

Interesting thing, If one had tweezers, one could pick the "fossils" out of the rock/dirt, as they are mostly loose.

There was other shells, which crumbled into bits, and were packed together with the dirt on top of these rocks.

These are so-called "hash plates" containing brachiopod and crinoid pieces.
