Quite possibly Hackberry.

Thanks for the reply! I have been looking at pictures of bark trying to identify and hackberry seemed fairly close. Have only milled cedar, walnut, and silver maple trying to branch out to more and when its already cut cant beat that.

Hackberry was the first thing that came to mind.  Are there any bumpy / warty features on the bark?

Hackberry.  That warty bark is found on hackberry and it's close relative, sugarberry.  The wood color is also indicative of hackberry.

Can you tell the wood type just from the smell?
