You always need to try and back up your family stories with facts.

Donald immigrated in 1905:

Euphemia and the children followed soon after (1907 according to the census).

Alexander and Frances returned to the USA from Scotland in 1908 (three years after Donald arrived) and he says he is a US citizen.

This is wonderful information, thank you so much. All my family knew about Daniel/Donald was that he existed and had come to the U.S. Interesting that there was an entire group of cousins that they had never heard of, living in the same town. The eldest grandchild of Alex, my aunt, died in 2013 at age 97, born in 1916 so she should have heard about Alex and Francis visiting and returning from Scotland, and Daniel immigrating in 1905 (which would have been big news), but I interviewed her repeatedly, and reviewed family Bibles, etc. to get names and dates, and neither she nor her younger siblings knew anything about 'Uncle Dan.' I can't thank you enough for connecting me to this 'arm' of the family tree.
