Thanks for solving a long-standing mystery, James! My sincere apology for not replying sooner -- the automated notification of your species ID drowned in a flood of e-mails. Your help is appreciated nonetheless!

I'll second the Rubus ID. Blackberries/Dewberrries/Raspberries are kind of hard to pin down as to species.

Looks like Dewberry. It's a type of Rubus much like blackberry. It has long, sharp thorns and was used as a property border.
