There is also another John Myllymäki arriving at Ellis Island on 3 Feb 1901 from Finland. I checked on Migration, but unfortunately my subscription ran out and I can't check the details. This one was 32, DOB would be abt 1869, and arrived from Liverpool on the Lucania. Left England 26 Jan 1901.
Ancestry has alot of Myllymaki entries. According to them, in 1920 the name was found in Ohio, 4-6 families, MI and MN, 2-3 families, and 1 family each in MT, PA, NH, RI and MA. The family I found in Ishpeming had been there as early as 1900. It would help alot if we had an accurate birth date and wife's name.

"my Juho" was born 1873 in Kuortane and died 03.12.1918 in Amerikka, maybe reason was spanish flue.
