Great graphic, LP! Yes, I'd think that all the kids in the portrait are Goofy's siblings, and this picture could be more than twenty years old. Goofy could be, say, 17 here, and could be in his late thirties in the present day.
Yes, considering Goofy is supposed to be at least a few years older than Mickey (and presumably Donald too), then yes: this could very well be more than 20 years ago. I know I only made that graphic yesterday, but pretty much all of my views regarding it has already shifted: The photo is likely older than 20 years old and all the children are likely Goofy's siblings. The only aspect of the graphic I still cling to is the idea that the leftmost brother is the same one from ZM 54-05-30. If the picture is over 20 years old, he probably hadn't yet met his wife at this point, so the one I labeled as his wife is likely his and Goofy's sister.
Finally, the brother in blue standing next to Goofy is the best candidate for Gaffy, as he and Goofy appears to be of similar age. Goofy and Gaffy were seen as toddlers in another picture in Gaffy's story, where the two are looking identical in age.

Goofy’s great grandpa appears in this Walsh/Gottfredson strip: inducks.org/story.php?c=YM+61-09-14 . I’d say he’s Grandma Goofy’s father, given that they have the same basic character premise (very ‘hip’ and ‘with it’ despite their age), and they were both created by the same writer/artist duo.
Also, on the topic of Goofy’s surname, I seem to remember that in one Gottfredson serial, Goofy’s full name was said to be ‘Gideon El Goofola’. And another one where he was called Arthur Goof or something like that?
