Please identify this tree

I don't think it is an ash and it's not a locust, I am at a loss as to what it may be. Can anyone help? Some leaves are alternate some are not. No serrated edges or pointier leaf tips. No thorns of any sort.
Please help, curiosity is killing me and I cannot find the exact match on line.

Looks like black locust to me; not KCT.

RE: Please identify this tree

I will go with black locust as well. I took my little dog for a walk this evening specifically to look at the foliage of my Ky coffee tree and black locusts. The coffee tree's leaflets are pointed, and the locust's are not. It looks like a robinia.
