Look at the options in the " show bridge address-table" command.  I think " show bridge address-table address xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx" will be what you need.

thanks i have tried the show bridge but what it doesnt tell me is if its on this particular switch port or if its on another switch that this port is connected to. is there a way to see exactly what switch the device is directly connected to.

You just have to follow the path by looking at the address tables on each switch until you get to the switch it is connected to.
