I can't say if they were German settlements but certainly a Friedek located 
in modern southwest Poland would have been in Silesia which was part of 
Germany in 1873.  The one in Czech may have been in Austria-Hungary but I 
am not sure where the historical border was at the time.

My map only covers Russian Poland so it would not show places in Silesia or
