Notes: Giesinger lists as Grossliebental daughter colony, but village is actually located in Beresan district. Mertens states founding families from Grossliebental & Neuberg, ev. villages. General Wassili bought land and some resident Greeks lived there. By 1885 under 80 families lived on divided land. By 1908-1912 2/3 of the inhabitants came from Mariental, Josefstal, Peterstal and Grossliebental leading to the fact that more than half of the village was not Katholic. In 1917-1929 the village was exempt from victims of terror, war, and hunger. Schule 1-4 (1926). Population 293/484 in 1905, 590 in 1908, 485 in 1911, 515 in 1914, 515 in 1918, 420 in 1919, 512 in 1926, 735 in 1941-1943.
