one looks like a grape, the other just a hardy ole vine climbing a wire from the house to the shed.
the third is a small tree looking plant that has a bizarre winged structure.
Thx for any answers, always enjoy learning about the plants in my little acre.
The first one is Smilax and the third one is Ulmus alata (Winged Elm) but I can never remember the name of that dang little melon vine.
#2 is strangely familiar….Wondering if it is one that I think I know as a wild cucumber vine…?
That's it Tom! A creeping cucumber…Not the wild cuke that I was thinking of! Thanks…Spot on! But regardless, you'll want to rid yourself of it! :-)) I'm still pulling this one that I have out! :-)

The back of my brain was saying "it starts with M-E-L, like melon, you dummy"... I guess it was right.
#3 is, i guess Euonymus alatus
I would agree with plantfreak that #3 is Ulmus alata and not a Euonymus because of the alternate leaf arrangement and the deep serrations on the leaves.
plantfreak, however, clearly has no idea what she's doing...
