He's not the man in Queens, NYC in 1925, an undertaker. That man was there in 1910.
He's not the man in Allegheny and Beaver Counties, Pennsylvania. He married in that area in 1903.
He's not the man who died in Delaware County, PA in the 1940s. He was there by  1910.

Could he have returned to Scotland? [Standard answer when you can't find a person in the US after arriving.]  :)

Charles Friel born Portstewart (which matches manifest birthplace in your 1st post).

Page 2 of 1923 manifest gives friend as John McGraw, 246 8th Ave., N.Y.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Not sure if you have this information but here is the 1901 census for Sarah Friel (nee Linden):

DetailSource
Name:   Sarah Friel
Age:   25
Estimated Birth Year:   abt 1876
Relationship:   Head
Gender:   Female
Where born:   New Monkland, Lanarkshire
Registration Number:   651
Registration district:   New Monkland
Civil parish:   New Monkland
County:   Lanarkshire
Address:   1 Chayne's Land
ED:   54
Household schedule number:   43
Line:   1
Roll:   CSSCT1901_344
Household Members   Age   Relationship
Sarah Friel      25   Head  (died 1925 Scotland)
Hugh Friel      4   Son
Terence Friel  2   Son (died 1901)
Mary Friel      9 Mo Daughter  (died 1968 Scotland)

Son Terence died 1901: 2 further children Annie (1902 - 1985 Scotland), James (1904)

Through process of interrogation on the Scotlands People 1911 census I believe that the family (without Charles) may be living in Maryhill Lanarkshire:

Surname   Forename   Year   Gender   Age    Ref                RD Name   County/ City   Image View
FRIEL         HUGH      1911 M           13     644/14 23/ 30  Maryhill          Lanark

I did'nt have any credits to check/confirm the 1911 census on Scotlands People.

Daughter Mary (Mary Linden Friel) married a William Sheridan 10th Feb 1923 in Plains, Lanarkshire.

Daughter Annie Friel married Edward Gallacher 14 July 1923 in Plains Lanarkshire.  The online tree I found on An..ty shows at least 4 children :

Sarah (Sadie) Gallacher 19241999

Patrick Gallacher 19262019

Catherine Gallacher 1928

Charles Gallacher 19302010
