I’ve seen enormous old beech trees and know that distinctive bark but nonetheless I did look up the leaves anyway Their edges are smoother than this tree. The next closest fit is almost as unlikely as it being an American Chestnut, and this would be it being an ancient elm, though the leaves slightly favor chestnut. Also, the manner in which the limbs spread out was not the same way that a spreading elm does.
