In the same camp as Delaware.  Definitely white oak, Quercus alba.

at first thought a "Shagbark Hickory" but could be white oak.

What do you look at to see that it's a white oak?

The bark, white oak is held on by the side like a fish scale. Shagbark hickory the bottom peals up....at least around here.

Hickory has a single bud at the end of the twig.  The oaks have a cluster of buds at the end of the twig.
