Ottoman census 1879. Doc; 151-a-1 page 301

This document records the 2nd generation of the Mehmet Said familiy. The sons of Mehmet Said were  İbrahim  Mehmet  'Paça'  born 1819 Mustafa Mehmet 'Gazmalevri' born 1813 or 1798. I firmly believe the years of birth of Dudu and Mustafa were mistakenly mixed. The 1831 census much closer to the period confirms this
