I have tons of these plants covering a hill in my backyard. They are low to the ground (at least as of now) and have veiny, soft leaves. Located in western Massachusetts.

I agree. For a moment I thought it might also be Aconitum but Geranium fits better.

Could it be some kind of mallow, maybe?

Looks much like my Goldenseal - Hydrastis canadensis when the new leaves first emerge.

I also agree with geranium.

Hydrastis canadensis, even new leaves, have a different margin that to say with sharp teeth.

Geranium on this picture have a round teeth.

I know it's a small technical difference !
