Those last 2 pictures look like chestnut to me. It those are checks on the tenon picture and not rays, they are probably chestnut too. Chestnut has only microscopic rays so are mostly invisible. Chestnut is fairly rot resistant even in the ground and was probably the most common wood in its natural range to be used for barns and other construction until it was mostly wiped out by chestnut blight. If they are old growth chestnut, they could be fairly valuable and if decide you cannot use them, offer them for sale.
