These are hackberry trees (Celtis occidentalis). This is also a common tree on the banks of the Wabash River. Also good fruit for birds. The fruit is about the size of a pea with one inedible stone seed and a very thin layer of tasty pulp surrounding the seed. If you get a chance to find a hackberry when it has ripe fruit taste the little bit of pulp, it tastes remarkably like a date.
