might be R. xerampelins for the first two pictures, but the last one is something completely different. It has a glutinous veil and a chrome yellow stipe base. So this must be a Gomphidius species. I don’t know which, I’m not familiar with the american fungus flora. But certainly there are not many red capped Gomphdius!
