Nice collection of points, do the triangles in Ohio span a large amount of time? Around here they are pretty much all Mississippian
Most if not all, were late Woodland to Mississippian. There is also a Ft. Ancient culture in Ohio & nearby states that made triangles.

The earliest arrow points in IL were late woodland Schild spikes. A small core struck blade with minimal retouch. The Koster point was another early one. Then it seems they did a lot of experimenting before they finally settled on the triangle shape. At Dixon Mounds in IL the early woodland burials were the earliest Native Americans that had arrow points embedded in bones. The bow and arrow ushered in violent times for the natives.

A very nice frame.
In my area I dont find a lot of triangles much anymore. There were two locations I found them, but those areas are now developed.
