SOLVED: Green five leaf unknown in yard

Winchester, IN

Just moved to the country and have a large yard of several unknown plants.
Hope you can help me identify them as I find time to take a picture of 'em.
This one I thought was a strawberry, but don't strawberries have 3 leaves?
Please don't tell me it's a poison ivy as my wife is highly alergic!

It's definitely not poison ivy. It looks an awful lot like one of the Fragaria, but those herbaceous-y things aren't my specialty.

I think strawberries can be kind of variable in the number of leaflets composing the leaf.

There are a number of plants in the frame; the one in the center with 5-part leaflets is a Potentilla spp.. There's another plant immediately to the right of that one which seems to have 3 leaves.

Magnolia, TX(Zone 8b)

Dewberries, Blackberries looked at?

Panama, NY(Zone 5a)

as altagardener said, aka cinquefoil. It's a weed.

Greenfield, NH(Zone 5b)

I think this is a appears in my gardens in NH and if left has long runners that attached themselves to the dirt and grow new plants.
