Nettie Preston (Colt) Sortman was the daughter of Almon Davis and Ida Belle (Huyck) Colt. She married Fred Gradner Sortman on 4 July 1900 in Watkins Glen, New York. Nettie was very active in the social and political concerns and movements of her time. She was tall for a woman of her time and this placed her out in front of a number of local movements. Today we would call her an "activist".
