Christer, just had a sudden thought that perhaps might help you trace Julius. It occurred to me that "Tower" might have been "americanised" simply by transcribing "Toveri" a little bit differently.

And guess what: the passport register of the Finnish Migration Institute has a record for a passport for Julius Nestor Mattsson Toveri. He might be your Julius.

Unfortunately, I only have access to free-of-charge lookups at the MI website, so the name is all I get. Hope it can lead you in some direction, though, if you or someone else has paid the fee and has full lookup access.

The passport was issued on 01.05.1893 to Julius Nestor Mattsson Toveri, miller's son from Honkajoki. The date of birth is not stated. Honkajoki is as you might already know in northernmost Satakunta on the boarder to Ostrobothnia.

Your suggestion Paivi about Toveri was not bad, i did not think of that , i was looking for Tauri I hope the Julius Toveri Staffan found is the right one: Kiitos Paivi, tack Staffan.

I did not find anybody in the members lists nor the baptismal list nor the marriage register and funeral lists.
