Gottlieb Affolter was born in Switzerland

Gottlieb Affolter enlisted in Company I, One hundred and Seventh Ohio, which was in the Eleventh Army Corps until after the Battle of Gettysburg when the First Division was transferred in August, 1863, to the Tenth Corps to share in the siege of Charleston.
On May 2, 1863, at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Gottlieb Affolter was shot through the right lung and a few minutes later a piece of shell made a severe wound on his right hip. He was left for dead on a part of the field that fell to the enemy who sent the more lightly wounded southward but stretched Gottlieb in a row with the fatally wounded who were gathered up under a flag of truce on May 17 and taken to Camble Hospital at Washington City, where he recovered and joined the regiment three months later. On January 5, 1865, he was captured near Vellucia, Florida, and taken to the infamous Andersonville Prison. On April 2, 1868, Gottlieb Affolter married Miss Mary Anna Waltz, who was born April 29, 1850.

His occupation was a "Mine Boss"

Gottlieb and Mary had 11 children
