Mr Usscher Pulner,1 aged 16, was born in the Russian Empire (perhaps Ukraine) around 1895. Other details about his life are unknown.
Described as a Russian national, Usscher worked as a plumber and his last place of abode was given as Paris when he boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as a third class passenger (ticket number 3411 which cost £8, 14s, 3d).
He was apparently being chaperoned across the Atlantic by a family friend, Aaron Willer, a Paris-based tailor of Ukrainian origin who had made his home in the USA since 1907 but had been working in Paris since 1910; the two travelled on sequential tickets. He was presumably travelling to Chicago, Illinois where Willer and his family made their home at 332 North Leavitt Street.
Usscher Pulner died in the sinking and his body, if recovered, was never identified.
