Julius was the son of Wilhelm Eschmann and Frederica Greve. About 1849, along with his parents and siblings, he immigrated to the United States where he settled in Washington, Ohio. In 1855 he married Louisa Roeder at Cincinnati and they had five children: Julia, Henry, Louisa, Emma and Matilda. By 1856 the family had moved to Louisville, Kentucky. That year Julius formed a partnership with his cousin Henry Greve and William Buhrlage and began a furniture manufacturing business under the name of Greve, Buhrlage & Co. The company made a general line of home furnishings focusing on chamber, hall and dining room furniture. It also furnished the interiors of many large steamboats of the era. In 1878 the company became a corporation under the name of the Kentucky Furniture Manufacturing Company with Julius as its president. Business declined in the 1880's and by the end of the decade the company was out of business. Around 1900 he opened a bakery but it was only in existence for a few years.
Louisa died of uterine cancer in 1892 and in 1894 he married Elizabeth Killion Buhrlage, the widow of his one-time business partner William.
Julius suffered a stroke in 1907 and he died the following year of senility at the age of 77.
