William W. Mohler, his wife Lizzie, and grandson Charles Haak Mohler arrived in Coffeyville, Montgomery County, Kansas about 1910. Charles Haak Mohler was the son of deceased parents Lloyd William Mohler and Harriet Haak Mohler. School records, in the possession of Carol Mohler Webb, indicate Charles Haak Mohler attended school in Coffeyville in 1911. Charles H. Mohler graduated from the Coffeyville High School class of nineteen hundred and fourteen. Commencement exercises were Monday evening, June first at eight o’clock in the Jefferson Theatre. Charles Haak Mohler went to work for an oil refining company, first as a laborer, and latter as an office clerk. In September of 1917, Charles enrolled as a freshman at the University of Kansas. Accounts of his enrollment, as well as other letters written while at school, are in the possession of Carol Mohler Webb.

On November 8,1917 an article in the Coffeyville Journal William W. Mohler became ill and was taken to the hospital "in a poor condition, and is very low." On Nov. 9, 1917, William W. Mohler died. The funeral article mentions son Jacob Henry and family of St. Louis Missouri, and Charles H. Mohler. After his grandfathers death Charles Haak returned to Coffeyville, in all probability to care for his grandmother Lizzie.

In 1918 Charles Haak Mohler married Pauline Eleanor Smallwood, daughter of Lena Mrytle and James Smallwood.
