Daughter Colonies of the Belowesch
In 1802 the first daughter colony, Kreschtschatick (Kreschatten) was founded seventy versts east of the Belowesch colonies.  The population grew so rapidly that in 1831, a group of 131 families founded 5 new villages in the Mariupol district which were named after the mother colonies (Belowesch, Gross-Werder, Kaltschinowka, Klein-Werder, and Rundewiese).  In 1861 another group went to the Crimea and founded the village of Byten and in 1878 the village of Deutsch-Chaginsk was founded in the North Caucasus.  At the turn of the century, forty families went to the Turgai region east of Orenberg to found a settlement there.
