I was thinking to Peter Sagan, who’s from Zilina, Slovakia.

Bablah, what do you think?

There are lots of ethnic Polish people named Sagan.

Was Sagan ethnically Ukrainian, though? Ternopil oblast had a lot of ethnic Polish people at the time.

Most John Sagans in the U.S. seem ethnically Polish.

Unfortunately, I didn’t find anything other than his WWI draft card and I’ve tried searching Ivan, Iwan and Jan. I might take another crack at Ellis island records later.
