Sorry, I don't have the information at home. I believe you can get it by
going to the Jewish Encyclopedia, under Shchedrin. The story with
Shchedrin, as I remember it, is that a Chasidic Rabbi convinced a Russian
nobleman to buy the land and to give it to the Jews, so they could have a
place they wouldn't be interfered with.
