Found this in Northeast Texas does anyone have any feedback on what any of these stone tools could have been used for…they are all worked to some degree

a few of them look like broken pottery pieces to me.
I know it’s hard to tell from a picture, but they are all stone…thank you for your feedback. The area is abundant with pottery as well, pictured below are pottery shards I have found in the mole hills in the yard.

I would call number 2 a knife or scraper, number 4 looks like a piece of concretion, and numbers 1-3-5-6 look like knapping debitage.
I agree with flint hunter's opinion. #2 looks like a nice thumb scraper, 1, 3, 5, and 6 look like debitage.

# 2 is a tool like others have said hard to say scraper or knife or preform without seeing if the other side is worked, a pic of the backside would help.
