This rock was found in Indiana USA. It appears to have fossilized organic material. 3 different views. Does anyone have any ideas?

It's a favositid tabulate coral, probably Devonian or Silurian. The last photo is a transverse (horizontal) section showing the polygonal corallites. The first two show mostly longitudinal sections, each corallite having regularly spaced horizontal "floors" called tabulae.
Search "Favosites" to see more specimens.

Thanks for the info. After searching for Favosites images, that does seem to be the case
