Finding a Location: Padol, Russia (eta. 1875) #russia


I'm looking for the proper name of the town/city/village of what was known in the late 1800s, specifically 1875 as Padol, Russia. I have seen Padol, Russia written as such on many naturalization documents and I can't quite figure it out. I've only come up with Podil in Kyiv but part of me thinks that it incorrect. Any thoughts, hypothesis, or ideas to to where this "Padol" is located would be great! Thanks!

My maternal grandparents were from Krusnoye, Podolia Gubernia, Russia/Ukraine. I believe they often referred to the are as Podol. 

Happy hunting,

the Gubernia is after the town Kamenets-Podolsk, its center.
It stands in the lower part of Ukraine, as "pod" is the russian for "under"
