Any of the bows you mentioned would be a decent starter bow for you, especially if you start out with a lower weigth like the 30# mentioned. That will let you develop good shooting form, which is essential for accurate shooting, without developing bad habits from using too much draw weight.

As you learn to shoot, try as many other bows as you can, check out traditional shoots and rendezvouses in your area, and over time you will see what you like and don’t like in a bow, as will your wife and daughter. Once you know what you want you can start to think about putting some more money into something you can shoot for years and years.
