The top picture is Jack in the Pulpit, but the bottom one is not, assuming those leaves are attached to the seed clump.  I have a ton of them in my yard.

The bottom pic is all one plant except for the poison Ivy in the corner. 

I read a few sights that said while rare, ginseng may have three or four leaves.

In case you're getting hungry, I will mention that Jack in the Pulpit was supposedly used by Native Americans as a nasty surprise for invading tribes.  They would grind up the root and leave it with other foodstuffs that were subject to being raided.  It's quite poisonous (raw).

I read this on the internet, so it must be true.

I don't even touch plants without 100% ID.  Made the mistake with poison hemlock. Pulled some out barehanded then ate lunch.  Chest palpitations and shortness of breath followed.
