I decided to plant another seedling in a place where I thought the last one had died out. When I started digging the hole I discovered that the plant had just sunk down under the soil. There actually was a small (1" high) fan, and a decent root system. But when I dug it out, the little fan completely broke off. Does anyone know, will another fan form at the top of the root system, or is that highly unlikely? I am replanting it anyway, but I wondered if anyone else had this experience, and what happened.

If the crown, or even part of the crown is left, it will regrow.

Yes, one or possibly more than one new fan will likely develop. Depending on how much of the growing point broke off with the fan the new fan(s) may develop from other parts of the crown, not necessarily at the top of the root system but sometimes from underneath the edges of the root system (crown). See the photo below of a sliced daylily crown with only one fan.
