A bachelor. He grew up on the family farm in Doniphan County, Kansas, but went to work for the railroad in his early 20's. He was a section foreman until a few months before his death. He died of melanoma, probably all his years working on the farm and the railroad. It should be noted that his headstone is shown with last name as KOHLER, but the family always spelled the name KOEHLER and Jacob's death certificate was issued under KOEHLER.
