Los Angeles Herald Oct. 10, 1907:

LONG BEACH, Oct. 9. Mrs. Dora Kohler 50 years old, died suddenly shortly after 8 o'clock last night, while taking a bath In the bathroom at her home, 1345 East First street. Her death was unknown until this morning when her husband, G. D. W. Kohler, discovered her body afloat in the bathtub, which was full to the overflow with water. An autopsy performed by Deputy Coroner C. M. Gage and Dr. Campbell of Los Angeles resulted in the discovery that fatty degeneration of the heart was the cause of death. Mrs. Kohler was 50 years old and a native of Germany. With her husband and 16-year-old daughter, Miss Edna, she came here last July from Lexington, Neb., where for many years Kohler had engaged in the grocery business and later in the shoe business. A 24-year-old son, Walter, is a dentist in Lexington. Funeral arrangements will not be made until his arrival here. Mrs. Kohler informed her husband last evening that because of the annoyance caused her by the fleas she would occupy another room for the night, it is supposed that shortly after her husband retired, at 8 o'clock, she entered the bathroom. When the fatal stroke came upon her it is supposed she had fallen back against the faucet, turning it slightly. A small stream of water was running into the tub when she was found this morning. The woman's head had remained above the water and none had entered her lungs.
