I think this first one is Melanolophia signataria but it would be great to have an expert opinion.

This one looks like Melanolophia canadaria, because of the doubled lines. Comments on this would be welcome.  Proctor, “Mt Desert Region Survey: Insecta” published 1938, includes M. signataria but not M. canadaria.
