Fredrick Pfaff b. 1843 Freudental / Od. owned a chutor [large land estate] when he died, however, we're not sure where it was accept it was probably near Fruedental and Worms where his daughter, Pauline Pfaff, met Jacob Roemmich her future husband.
Worms / Od, the Beresaner area, is where the Roemmich family migrated in 1809 and around it they created 8 chutors.

A German-Russian Colony
Exerpts from Joseph Height's HOMESTEADERS ON THE STEPPE
"The colony of Freudental was established in 1806 on a tract of steppland comprising 5,830 des (or 15,711 acres) that was originally planned for settlement of 100 families. The site of the new village was on the north side of the Baraboi creek, 5 versts north of Peterstal, and 30 versts west of Odessa.
"The first group of settlers consisted of 36 families who arrived from Hungary in the summer of 1806. They had come in their own wagons from the German colonies of Torschau, Sekitsch, Cherwenka and Neuverbas in Hungary which had been establish in 1782 by immigrated from Wuerttemberg and the Rhineland plains of Alace and Palatinate."
Judy's note: The family legend states that our Pfaff's migrated with the man who became governor of Odessa, Duc de Richelieu. In Height's third paragraph he states that Duc de Richelieu did accompany the wagon train with the Ungarian immigrants to the stepp....."
