The Missouri Pacific and the Santa Fe Railroads came together at a spot in the northern part of the county, and a town named Thomas had been set up two miles west of that crossing. In 1886, residents moved to the site of the railroad crossing and named it Geneseo after a town in Illinois.
The ethnicity of its settlers is not known.
