      Researcher Diane Moore maintains an interesting memorial to John Fridrich and his wife Josephine Dvoracek (brother and sister-in-law to Frances Fridrich) at the Find A Grave website. It includes photos and an excellent biography taken from "History of South Dakota Territory, Its History and Its People" by George W. Kingsbury, 1915. It gives wonderful flavor to life in South Dakota for the Czech immigrants. You will enjoy reading it! Link for John Fridrich at Find A Grave.
