I am glad that you agreet hat the fourth one is different.There are various species in this pond. Painted turtle,box turtle and some tortoises.
Could this be a Western painted turtle. I saw one recently.

The first 3 look like they are Trachemys scripta, defenately a Trachemys sp.
The last one i am not going to hazzard a guess.
