Husband of Juana Oleata. Son of Doroteo Sortillon and Luisa Borquez.

Yuma Daily Sun obit:
Born in Yuma in 1872, Mr. Sortillon spent his entire life here and before his retirement several years ago, was employed by the Bureau of Reclamation.
Surviving are six daughters: Mrs. Luisa Ruiz, Bard, CA, Mrs. Francisca Vasquez, Indio, CA, Anita Sortillon, Mrs. Josie Olea, and Mrs. Beatrice Gonzales, Gadsden; one son, Mike Sortillon, Yuma.
Also surviving are 31 grandchildren, 23 greatgrandchildren and two sisters: Mrs. Miquela Imperial, Yuma, and Mrs. Francisca Yanez, Watsonville, CA.
Mr. Sortillon's father came from Mexico soon after the Pot Holes discovery and was one of the well known miners of this country.
Sortillon's father was also one of the discoverers of the Picacho field and Refugio, then a small boy, said he had often looked into an old trunk his mother used as a treasure vault and had seen it almost full of cans each loaded with golden nuggets.
