The following table contains census information about Mennonite foreigners who arrived in the Molochansk Mennonite Colony, Berdyansk Uyezd, Tavrichesk Gubernia. The data was compiled on 2 June 1852. It appears that all of the newly arrived Mennonites had arrived from Prussia in 1851 and the first half of 1852. The following table is an amalgamation of separate entries in the original file, and the numbering is created for the purposes of this table. The GRANDMA numbers refer to the GRANDMA Vol. 3 database produced by the California Mennonite Historical Society.
