Notes: Original name was Karagoli and listed as found in 1805/09 according to Eduard Mack’s book Erinnerungen an die deutschen Kolonien des Grossliebentaler Rayons bei Odessa. Stumpp book reflects "13 families from Hungary (Temesvar and Kula) again departed. In 1806 – 1809 thirty-eight families came from Alsace and the Rhine Palatinate." This would tend to reflect why the earlier 1805 founding date, and also reflect why others use the founding date of 1808. Mertens states in his book Handbuch Russland-Deutsche on page 288 that the population in 1825 was 361, 625 in 1852, 789 in 1858, 789 in 1859, 803/924 in 1905 with 130 houses, 665 in 1911, 690 in 1914, 690 in 1919, 702 in 1926, and 1,013 in 1943.
