Ours is quite different.
Gallberry
Ilex glabra
Family: Aquifoliaceae

Here is a picture of one with unripe berries. When ripe the berries are black and a little bit larger.
They have small white flowers and there are thousands of flowers on every plant.

Yes, looks different, but same genus.

Ours has many clusters of small white flowers, but the berries are red and the plants higher.
