GENEVIEW, TEXAS. Geneview is on Farm Road 1263 twelve miles north of Aspermont in north central Stonewall County. A post office was established there in July 1923, with Gertie E. Massey as postmaster. Its name was selected from a list sent by the postal department. Early businesses at Geneview included a general store and a blacksmith shop. Although its post office was moved to Aspermont in August 1935, Geneview reported a population of fifty and two businesses as late as the mid-1940s. The 1980 county highway map showed a cemetery called Mount Olive near the Geneview townsite. In 2000 the population was six.
