Actually the chocolate brown is still the outer bark.  If you go through the brown part and into the inner bark that is functioning phloem (transport of sugars from photosynthesis, the inner bark is a bright sulfur yellow.

If it is an oak, yellow poplar, or walnut, all we need is a twig with buds.  Oaks have a cluster of buds at the twig tip.  Yellow poplar has a bud shaped like a duckbill with two distinct halves called a valvate bud.  Also, the stipular scars completely encircle the twig whereas in oak and walnut, there are not even barely visible and do not encircle the twig.  You can split the pith in the walnut twig, and the pith will be chambered with very distinct black dividers.

Looks like it could possibly be cottonwood?

To all, I will stop by the woods tonight and I know there is a cluster of 4 or 5 of these trees that are all together with a couple 8-12" trees with the larger two. Maybe I'll be able to get a twig off of one of the smaller trees with the pole pruner. I will keep you posted.

Correct. Poor terminology on my part.  I should have said "the inside/interior of the outer bark."
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

If cottonwood, twigs should be stout and 4-angled toward the tip.  The pith of twig is solid and be star-shaped on x-section.

Sorry to disappoint guys but I didn't get to Mom and Dad's until after dark last night, so I didn't get a branch, I will try again tonight.

Black gum or poplar. I would wait for for leaves or dig around for some old leaves.

The buds of both yellow poplar and blackgum are distinctive.  Plus, blackgum has a diaghrammed pith.

I will unfortunately have to wait till spring when the leaves come on before I figure out what tree this is. I tried to get to a branch with no luck.

This was my first thought.
