Bottom two look to be hickory.  The first could be hickory too.  Do you have any twigs/buds/leaves?

Couldn't see any. The last one down I thought was maybe an elm. I don't see a lot of them here though

The bottom one is red hickory, Carya ovalis.  

Virginia Tech Dendrology Fact Sheet

I do believe that all three are hickories.  The second one is almost certainly pignut hickory or bitternut hickory, most likely bitternut.  They are easy to tell apart with the leaves.  Also the buds of bitternut are sulfur yellow.

cannot help you. A long time ago I had a college course in forestry. to pass the class ,the students were required to identify 50 species of various trees and shrubs all by buds, leaf scars, no bark, leaves etc and know the latin names and correct spelling. It was a fun class and yes I did pass the class. The other  class that was also interesting was a soil class That was taught by a pakistani PHD whose lectures were extremely difficult because of his accent. He gave lot's of reading assignments and his exams were always based on the reading assignment, never on his lectures. So if you didn't read the book you were in trouble. Too long ago now
