William W. Mohler, his wife Lizzie, and grandson Charles Haak Mohler arrived in Coffeyville, Montgomery County, Kansas about 1910.

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.
