The town at Milepost 57.8 started on the railroad schedule as Jeffersonville. By 1878, it had been changed to Geff. Various sources state the railroad wanted to eliminate confusion with Jeffersonville, Indiana. Another attributed the change to the post office for mail being sent to the wrong destination.
