More Fossils?

I flushed out my well water filter recently and photographed more of those "tiny doughnuts" shown in my previous post. The larger ones are about pin head size. Found two white flakes (in one picture) that seem to have some kind of surface structure, and in another is a brown slender object that looks like a very small fossilized bone or plant part. To the naked eye what I have looks like a small pile of beach sand, but my well is in Middle Tennessee several hundred miles from the nearest beach, the Gulf of Mexico.

Without having them in hand, I'll take a long shot and say the discs are crinoid stem segments. Possibly a bryozoan in there too.

Banned this clown for calling Windy City a crook in detector sales and from pm he sent me.
