I have found Ammelanchier lamarkii growing wild and I do not recall 
any spines.  Descriptions in my reference books also do not mention 
spines.  Further the fruit are described as deep red or purplish.

Could you have found a Crataegus, C. crus-galli has entire leaves and 
is not very hawthorn like.
