Since there were not in bloom, I am not certain what they are. Of course, the foliage was green last week when they were dug.

The iris looks like a normal tall bearded rhizome except it is longer and the foliage is taller and thinner.

Did someone give them to you or were they roadside finds?

The first sure looks like Amaryllis (Amaryllis) bulbs to me but there are probably lots of others that look like that too.

The second kind of reminds me of Iris (Iris virginica)

They were dug out of my cousin's yard but may as well have been roadside finds! She has lived in that house for 20 plus years and has no idea when or what color the blooms are. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

I was thinking maybe some type of Naked Ladies with the bulbs but was not sure.

The first and second do look like Amaryllis Belladonna (Naked Lady). The last looks like a Bearded Iris. I can't make #3 open so don't know.

the fans are too long and thin for a bearded, I have over 400 of those so I know for certain that is not what it is.

Yourfirst picture could also be Crinum bulbispermum (a member of the Amaryllis family) They are hardy in zone 6 and take a lot of neglect.
