Hi,
If you read my message carefully it says:

I am quite sure the name does not exist in Malia today.

The key word is MALIA, a village.
How do I know that, you may ask.
I know that because I am from there and I know every individual born and raise in the village.

How can a family disappear?
There are two ways:
1. The family left for various reasons (migrate and lives else where).
2. There are no males in the family to carry the family name further.
Females get married and the name just disappears.

There is a series of documents called: Translations of Turkish Historical Documents (1669-1860). Court cases, births, marriages, sales of various items, etc. You may find something there. (it is in Greek of course) Author: N. Stavridou.
