It might be Canada Thistle (Cirsium arvense) which is found in Ohio: http://www.oardc.ohio-state.ed...

Really hard to tell from a dead specimen, but might be Erechtites:

Did you take any photos of the live plants? We'd be able to see the details better in living plants. Thank You!

Cannot be a any Cirsium because the basal part of the flower (involucre) is completely wrong. The Erechtites sp. looks like a good candidate. Also look at Lactuca species, or possibly something else in the Asteraceae family.

Thank you so much everyone! These are actually plants collected by somebody else that I just identify!
