Veli Yusuf 'Kerlo'


YUSUF VELİ 'Kerlo' came  from Dali; his sister EMİNE KAVAZ 'Lurtena'  (wife of Mustafa Hasan 'Lurto' ) was his sister. As they originated from Dali tracing their roots further then the late 1800s is difficult. They were also related to the Kavaz family in Dali and Lurucina. [1]
