Nope, Dave - not Rowan. Rowan leaves are pinnate, meaning all the leaflets branch out from a central stem like a feather (or pinna in Latin). Carol's leaf is a complex compound leaf, with multiple leaflet clusters branching from a central stem.
Janie, I'll try to key it out in my "Woody Plants of Maryland" book, but since you're in N. Carolina, it might not be in my book. You might look up your local county Agriculture Extension and show them the photos. Nice pics, by the way!
