Yitzchak-Isaac Turniansky (later Turner) was born in Kolonia Yakovleva (also known as Kolonia Gutovo.) This colony was founded in 1849 by 16 families from Kobrin. In 1858 there were 79 males and 72 females. As of 1904, there were 31 families.

Miriam Steinberg visited  Yakovleva the summer of 2001. There is not much left of the colony.
