Surnames: Tocsko, Toczko, Tozcko
I found a few references to John Tocsko/Toczko in Connecticut newspapers (can't tell if the man in the first article is the same as the other man, though -- and, of course, can't tell if he is your "Jan" either...but these might be clues to other info for you.)

John Tocsko of this city, filed suit yesterday against the Crane company for $10,000 alleging he suffered permanently disabling injuries while in the employ of the defendant company in 1919.
