Waiting Turned Hunting In An Abandoned Cemetery In Beacon,NY

This morning, Beacon NY, Waiting for a ride to get to Hudson NY...Across the street from the train station. Off the paved sidewalk was a wooded space, an unkept cemetery, (mining): I found what I think are puffballs?
A Calvatia Gigantea? But maybe one on them (#6) is a Bovista nigrescens?

Not sure- #6 is firmer then the others, but still softish, white and fluffy inside. They are all white, and seem they turn a "dingy" color in age?

(The carrot was a gift from Hudson. From the ground too.

if it develops an apical hole it can't be a Calvatia. Bovista is a good guess. You might also have a Calvatia here, but maybe not C. gigantea....then, again, you might have the wandering souls of people trying to get back into the rightful graves.
