The Old McBrayer looks to be 1916 whiskey that was bottled in the 30s. See this link to one that sold at auction for $160 (probably for the contents not the bottle). The bottle is kinda neat that the label is intact, most are shot when dug.

The big green one with the kickup on the bottom looks foreign, and is probably older but I can't see any bubbles or imperfections in the glass (though if there is it would be older). Most of the time, old booze bottles are not big $ but are window bottles or decorator bottles, unless you get back to TOC or earlier flasks with slugplate markings. If these still had all the contents today they would be big buck$.
