Kloehr was born in 1858 in Germany. He came to America in 1870 with his family. In 1884 he married Katherine Huff. The couple eventually had four children - Jessie, born in 1885; Russell, 1887; Francis, 1888; and Nannie, 1893. Kloehr also engaged with the government in handling cattle on the Canadian river for a year, spent about a year prospecting precious metals in Colorado, and then returned to Coffeyville. He then started buying and selling horses, which lead him into the livery business. He ran a livery business for a time, which he later developed into a storage garage business. While still maintaining his business, Kloehr became Coffeyville's Chief of Police. In 1908, he instituted the use of a gold police chief's badge. Kloehr died in 1927. He was awarded a large gold medal with a diamond and a Winchester rifle that exist to this day!
