Mel Comisarow has recently returned from a trip to the Ukraine. Among the records he brought back is a list from 1850/52 of people who moved from Vitebsk Guberniya, city of Lyutzin to Novozlatopol colony. This list includes:

    Berko Reizes died 1849
    sons Mikhel Borukh aged 16 in 1850 and 18 in 1952
    Elya aged 22 in 1850 and 13 in 1852.

This fits in nicely with the Reizes family history written by Mikhoel Borukh in Jerusalem in 1903.
