It's an Acalypha of some sort, maybe Slender Threeseeded Mercury (Acalypha gracilens).

Thank you again, Kent. You are good! Smiling

Everything about Slender Threeseeded Mercury (Acalypha gracilens) looks correct.

A. virginica also grows in this area but its leaves are much wider.

I will add this to the database. Thumbs up
