What is this mystery rose?

Last year I visited a family member's garden and took some cuttings of a rose I found there. It was blooming in July but have no idea of its repeat bloom info. It was growing approximately 4-5 ft tall with a shrubby somewhat arching habit. It was very prickly with small 1-1.5" flowers with no noticeable fragrance. Here are pictures of the flowers from last year:


Here is a picture of how thorny it is:


These next pictures are of the cuttings I grew from the original rose...the thorns are much different now but maybe because its young:




Sorry for the blurryness of this one...just didn't want to focus for me:


Thanks for your help :)
