American Ginseg = Panax quinquefolius

Wild Cherry  =  Prunus spp.  there are numerous species of 
Prunus that are called cherries, the great Appalachian wild 
cherry that provides wonderful cabinet woods is P. serotina.

Yellow Dock = just a guess, but most things I know called dock 
are in the genus Rumex where there are very many species.
