Bob Saathoff shared this photo and wrote:

This is a shot of the original home that was on the Saathoff farm one mile east of the town of Charlotte. It burned to the ground sometime in the 30's. Dad said it was a chimney fire during the night. In the photo is my Grandfather and grandmother (Frank and Gertie) plus Sadie, Marie, Jack and Ben. This photo must have must have been 1915 or so.

Bob Saathoff also shared this later photo of the Frank Saathoff Family. He estimates that the photo was taken in 1936. Bob also notes that Albert is in the photo and he was killed in a farm accident in 1944 while George was in Europe.
