Mystery Heirloom Geranium

(Post for GardenWeb forum members)

At the last local Horticultural Society meeting everybody attending was given 4” pot with red geranium plant and with a task to identify it. The donor and speaker for the night was local nursery owner who said that this particular geranium was in his family for over 100 years but nobody knows the name.
Any help in identifying this plant is deeply appreciated.

Small flower of this specimen is very rose like in shape and deep red in color. Every individual bloom that forms head looks just like a mini rose.
