Jackie, I have the following information about Halbstadt from
Ulrich Mertens; "Handbuch Russland-Deutsche" (I have the German copy ( of this trusted guide to villages in Russia ):

Halbstadt (Katjuschino), Odessa/ Beresaner Gebiet/ Petrowka, * 1869, Kath. (Shoenfeld)/men., Land: 3.076 Dessj.; gegr. von Beresanrern; an der Grenze zum Gebiet Nikolajew;
Einw, 317 (1905), 320 (1913), 317 (1914), 605 (1919)

Which I translate as

Halbstadt (Katjuschino :Russian name?), Odessa district/ Beresan Region/ Petrowka,
founded 1869, Catholic (Shoenfeld?)/mennonite?., on 8.4 acres of land;
founded by Beresaners, on the border of the territory Nikolayev;
Inhabitants, 317 (in 1905), 320 (in 1913), 317 (in 1914), 605 (in 1919)

GRHC sells an expanded version of this book translated to English at

Hey Jackie, Don't know if you're interested in a photo I took of the Halbstadt church I took in Sept 2008. A few pics of gravesites also if you want. - Rich
