It doesn't look like a Washington hawthorn to me. Maybe a fruit tree or an ornamental fruit tree. I would cut the lower branches off and have a pretty decent looking tree.

Agree. It's not W.hawthorn; maybe seedling callery pear, but not Crataegus.

Looks like plum to me, or at least something from the prunus family

Tree is a pear, these can be pokey.

No 'e' in hawthorn, when talking about a hawthorn tree.

When you began to think there was something wrong with the tree did you do a little Googling? I'm surprised you didn't find some pictures of the foliage in your research. It's totally different from your tree's.

Here is a link that might be useful:
