Do you have a photo of the flower? I'm wondering if it could possibly be Geranium carolinianum?:

We have this growing our here, too. It's an easy weed to remove because the plant comes to a central taproot. Pull the taproot out and the whole plant goes out. It never occurred to me that these were geraniums!

Most geraniums are weeds
The showy plant commonly known as Geranium is actually Pelargonium and does not at all resemble the weeds.
