In 1865 he was living with his parents and siblings on the Pella farm in Trøgstad. The census identifies his age as 11 years old.
The 1900 census shows Julius and his family on the Løkke (gnr.53, bnr.24) farm in Askim. There were a number of tailors and shoemakers on Løkke with them.
Eilert Nygaard told the story that Johanne Martinsdatter got pregnant by Julius before they were married and so they left their family homes to start a new farm (Nygaard). 1151
When he was baptised on 21 October 1855 his godparents are listed as Sofie, Anne and Petter Pella, and Johan and Julius Næs.
He was recorded as a furniture maker (møbelsnekker) when he died.
Noted events in his life were:
• He worked as a saddlemaker and woodjoiner [Sadelmager og snedker] in 1900 in Løkke, Askim, Østfold, Norway.

They were living on Sandem in December 1903 and on Slårstad (?) in March 1908, according to the records of their children's christenings.
