Frank Bezdicek married Frances Bezdicek,
although they had the same last name, they were not related.
They were the parents of 9 children:
John, Frank jr, Frances, Joseph, Anton, Mary Anna, Vincent, Fred & Louis
1. John
married Antonette Zelezny
I have no further information on John or his family
2. Frank, jr. 1869--1891
He married Frances Hranicka (1872--1903) on May 21, 1891
Records state they had two children: Mary and Frank
I have a conflict with the dates for Frank and his son Frank.
Frank was injured in an accident while operating a steam engine tractor/threshing machine on
September 27, 1891.  His arm caught in the gears and when he arrived at the hospital the doctor
found it necessary the arm be amputated. Days after the surgery October 10, 1891, he either
coughed or sneezed during the night which apparently ruptured an artery and he bled to death.

Frank and Frances apparently were expecting their first child at the time of his death, as their
daughter Mary was born February 2, 1892 which was four months after Frank's death. The conflict
comes with their son Frank. According to his death certificate, the child  was born May 23, 1893;
his father is listed as Frank Bezdicek and mother is listed as Frances Hranicka. If anyone knows
the answer to this conflict, would you please
e-mail me and let me know what the correct
information is.

Frances married for the second time on January 29, 1894 to Albert Jahoda.

I found the children,
Mary (she married Joseph Baloun) and Frank on census records:
on the 1900 census they are listed with the last  name Bezdicek as step-daughter and step-son
and were aged 9 and 8 respectively. On the 1910 census they are listed under
the last name of Jahoda as son and daughter, with their parents, Albert and Frances Jahoda.

Albert and Frances had 8 children of their own:
Albina, Milo, Bohumil, Robert, Helen, Mathilda, Olga & Ernest
As I gather more information on the Jahoda family, I will post it here.

Frances died April 5, 1944
Albert died March 14, 1945
