Can anyone help me find a black thorn bush? A cutting or maybe where to purchase. PLEASE

Perhaps you should read some posts on this forum and the woodlands forum before you plant what you are wanting. Most consider it a pest and highly invasive. It is listed as a noxious weed in some states.

If you are serious you can probably find plants by doing a search and just put in the name. Commonly as a one word name but sometimes two words.

You did bring a memory of a lady that stopped at a garden club sale that was looking for strawberry vetch. When I offered to let her come to my house and get all she wanted she looked at me like I had grown two heads with antlers.

I looked for blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) for years before I found it at Oikos Trees. It is very common in the UK, but very difficult to find in the US.
