Hello Ruby and welcome to the forum.
Could you please look at the geological map below and confirm that it was found in the light blue area  Mississipean.

My first thought is that it is an Orthocone, a cephalopod , distant precursor to the ammonites.

Almost positive it would have been in the light blue section. I was in the Shaker Town community area
