Help Identifying Weed and Removal

Hello,

Around mid March I started noticing this weed popping up along the base of the back yard fence. I pulled them all up by hand and they were back about 5 days later.

I live just south of Houston, TX by the way.

I did my scheduled weed and feed for the lawn hoping it would kill it off like the other weeds but they are still there and multiplying.

I have attached photos. I tried looking for the weed online but haven't had any luck.

If you know what it is called and how to get rid of it, I will be most grateful.

Thanks,

Joe

I think the one with oak type leaf may be some type of burr. I can't find a super duper match though.

The more I look, the more the other looks like ragweed.
