Those are wild plums. We have a bunch on our property. I couldnt see your picture of the leaves but the fruit looks like a Flatwoods plum or possibly Mexican plum. Deer and hogs will camp out under them when they are dropping. The trees around here drop from middle of September to first week of October.

Well figures, close but no cigar. They are in the same genus as cherries though, which is probably why they were so similar looking.

Wild plums make sense.
