köyü is a small village in Manyas
district of Balıkesir Province
It has a (2000) population of 134.
This village was a farming community, not unlike many others in the world. What distinguished Hacı Osman köyü from all the other farming villages in the world was the fact that, until 1992
, it was one of the few villages where the inhabitants spoke the Ubykh language
in their daily lives. The last speaker of Ubykh, Tevfik Esenç
, was born, and died, in this village.
Other villages where Ubykh was spoken included Kırkpınar and Hacı Yakup.
