Default Artifacts?

Curious as to what I found. The points and the rock that looks like it was used as a pulley were all found around the same dry creek in Webb county. I am not even sure it is an artifact. Any ideas?
The tooth and rock with a hole in it were dug out of a creek bank in Kimble county. The tooth is fossilized. Any ideas what it is from?

Not an expert but maybe used as a hammer or club.

Unfortunately its only one quarter. The primitive tribes didn't leave much change laying around.

Looks like you found some really good stuff. I see a couple of the tools that look very, very old to me. You have some interesting finds. The tooth could be bison. Or horse. Not real sure.

Just a guess but the rock with the groove all the way around it looks like an anchor.

What do you think it would have been an anchor for? I never thought of that. That groove was made on purpose for something. I just don't know what.
