1) mouth plate (stingray?)
2) vertebrae (prob fish of some kind)
3-5) wow that's weird. no clue
14) hard to say from pic, but I think not coral; probably worm tube casts

rem, scale always helps.

Well, its killing me that no one knows what this thing is, so I am going to hazard a guess to hopefully get something started:

its a sponge fossil.

been doing some eyeballing around.
looks like # 14 may be fossilized coral
think you are right on the last item, appears to be fossilized sponge, and a pretty nice little one.
here is a link to one that has the same shape.
