McClure and Zimmerman lists the following reticulata (with description):

Pauline: Violet-purple with a white blotch on each fall

This seems close to your number one. I think there may be too many
candidates for the other two to single any one out on the basis of written
descriptions alone, though number three could be Harmony, which resembles
your description as it blooms here.
