I find these in a dry creek bed behind my house. I know what the crinoid is as it is our state fossil. The rest I hope to have identified. Thank you

Missouri Fossils

Lacinda,

You are right the first is a very nice crinoid calyx. It is upside down in this photo.

Number 2 is coral but I don't know what species.

Number 3 is a brachiopod.

Number 4 Is a mystery to me.

Your area of Missouri is primarily rocks from the Missippian Epoch of the Carboniferous Period.
