I thought this small tree to be the Eastern Nettle. But after taking close ups of its leaves, I am not so sure (for one the leaves margins are entirely toothed unlike that of Celtis). The leaves are slightly rough and papery. Please advise.

An update:

I found a lone black berry growing on this tree today and made a record of it hoping it helped in identifying.

I found two very large trees of the same species this evening. Can we hazard a guess to the genus? Please advise. I am attaching a couple of additional photos.
