The Hearless Murder of Nettie Sachs

This newly released book is the story of Nettie Sachs, an 
immigrant born in Lithuania in 1885. Coming to America
opened a world of opportunities for her. Educated in New
York as a pharmacist she life was an adventure in America.. 
She experienced the Spanish American war, Galveston 
Hurricane of 1900, Louisiana Exposition in St. Louis in 1904, 
ending with bootlegging and speakeasy’s in Chicago. Married 
five times, widowed twice, she gave birth to six children. 
Nettie was murdered by her fifth husband when she was only 
37 years old. Her last father –in –law was envious of her 
wealth and wanted to claim it for his own. He used his son, 
13 years her junior to marry her, then kill her. This true story 
and  the trial for her murder was the headline in papers across
 the country in 1923.

Characters and Birth Order
When stories are told and books are written they develop the 
personalities of their characters with the story.  Without 
knowing it, they all fit their birth order personalities. This is 
especially true when the story is true and not fiction.  This is 
the case with this book. The following are the birth orders of
the main characters.

Our central character is Nettie.  She had four older siblings 
but there was a large age gap between her next older sister 
and Nettie.  This gave Nettie a five/only double birth order.   
The five is a second level #1 so Nettie was a very put together 
woman that was very much in charge. Her Only traits gave 
her the ability to take charge and push forward with great 

Second Husband Louis Zauderer
Louis Zauderer was her second husband. He had a double 
birth order of a 2/1. Louis started the second group of 
children in the family as he had a much older brother.  He
 also had a younger sister a 3/2 who must have dethroned 
him.  She married a very wealthy attorney and their parents 
moved into his house in New York.  Louis never got over 
the dethroning and turned to drugs and alcohol.  He was a 
very unhappy man all his life. He had multiple wife’s after 

Nettie’s best friend Anna
Anna was a third born with older brothers.  She was shy and 
protected by her older brothers.  This made her very timid and 
careful when she was on her own. Laughing on the outside 
but crying on the inside.  When she got older she developed a
very tough exterior to protect her inner self, the number three 
doesn’t want anyone to know how vulnerable they are.

Edward Sacks
This was Nettie’s older brother in Houston.  (He spelled his 
name differently) He had a One/Only double birth order very 
similar to Nettie’s Five/Only.  This was the reason they got 
along so well and he was very supportive of her. He help 
finance  her education, she in turn named her first child for 
him..  Edward was a very successful businessman in Houston.

Dr. Samuel Herskovitz
Sam was Nettie’s third husband.  He was a number four birth 
order.  The baby in the family that everyone wanted to help.   
Women especially were fond of “taking care” of Sam. He had 
a very interesting relationship with an older woman who 
helped him during his medical school education. Sam was a 
driven man especially in his profession but didn’t mind 
taking a back seat to Nettie who had the superior birth order.

Harry Diamond
Harry was Nettie’s fifth husband and her murderer.  He was a 
firstborn that was coddled by his immigrant parents.  He could 
do no wrong and was given anything he wanted.  This 
developed in him an ego and superior attitude.  He felt laws 
were for others and that he was smarter than everyone else.   
A small time wise guy in the 1920’s. His luck ran out when 
he was convicted of Nettie’s murder.

I think you will enjoy this book now that you understand some 
of the character’s birth orders. Real life is sometimes stranger 
than fiction. You can learn more about birth order in my book

Rachel Maddow Her Birth Order: A Study In Sibling Rivalry

                                                     Rachel Maddow

Rachel Maddow, Television host, writer and political
commentator is seen almost every night on MSNBC 
TV. Maddow became the first openly gay anchor to 
host a major prime-time news program in the United 
States. She was born in Castro Valley California 
April 1, 1973. He father was a former United States 
Air force captain currently a lawyer.  Her mother was 
a school program administrator. She has an older brother.

Sibling Rivalry
Sibling Rivalry is seen primarily as the competition between
the first two siblings.  It’s not a new concept as it was 
discussed in the bible between siblings Cain and Able. The 
gender of the siblings can modify and color the struggle for 
power for the number one position. The effects of this rivalry 
can last a lifetime. The firstborn is usually the student and 
the second born the athlete.  Dethroning occurs if the second 
born becomes the better student as they already are the better 
athlete. The firstborn will then drop out as they now have 
nothing to make them special.  The reverse is also true where 
the firstborn is both the student and athlete.  Then the second 
born may drop out as he has been “kept in line” by the older 
sibling.  Sometimes it appears there is no rivalry at all.  Not 
true, the two siblings may feel secure in their positions or are 
afraid to challenge the other.  The sibling rivalry relationship 
is fluid and he can arise later in life if one of the siblings 
perceives a weakness in the other.
Rachel and Her Brother
Rachel was born in 4-1-1973, three years nine months younger 
than her brother David born 7-11-69. In high school Rachel 
played basketball, volleyball and was a swimmer. David said 
the two of them didn’t have an easy childhood.  It has been 
reported that Rachel use to wear his clothes. As a teenager
she would beat him up although she was three years younger.   
She used to tell his girlfriends that she was more of a man 
then him. He states that he really found it hard to find his own 
identity. Rachel was so focused on his dethroning that early 
on it looks like she was trying to change her gender identity.
There is no doubt that Rachel took the education prize 
from her brother.  She graduated at the top of her high-
school class and gave the commencement speech veering 
from the script and shocking the school administrators. 
She went on to Stanford University and was a recipient
of a Rhodes Scholarship to Lincoln College, Oxford. 
This is where she earned a Doctor of Philosophy in 
Politics. David went to the University of California 
San Diego.

Personal Life
David is single living in San Francisco in 2017.  A story 
is told that his life changed the day his Uncle Bert gave 
him a gun for Christmas while he was still in college.  
He said that was the last time Rachel beat him up, it 
changed his life.  His father says that David has had a 
hard time finding out what he wants to do but is a really 
good kid. Rachel is openly gay having been outed in 
college. Her life partner is Susan Mikula an artist. Their 
first date was at a National Rifle Association event. 
Sibling rivalry never ends.

Sexually Identity
Rachel shows us what can happen when Sibling rivalry 
goes to extremes. Gender identity can be part of the 
dethroning process. When a younger sibling moves up to 
the firstborn position they then have to take on the 
responsibilities of the firstborn. This is the unforeseen 
issue with successful dethroning.

For more information about birth orders and sibling rivalry 
you can find it in my book Life’s Fingerprint: How Birth 
Order Affects Your Path Throughout Life. Or go to my 
website .  The book is also 
available as an Audio Book.  If you contact me I will

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: Their Birth Orders

         Prince Harry and Meghan

The British Royal family is in the news with the upcoming 
marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.  The mystery
of attraction and the enduring stability of a marriage or 
relationship has eluded men and women from the beginning
of time.  Not anymore. By using birth order theory, we can
reveal the answer to this question. Prepare to be enlightened.
Love at First Sight
Is there such a thing as love at first sight?  The answer is 
yes.  Using birth order we find there are two types. The first 
one is the most exciting, when you meet someone with your 
exact same birth order.  You see life the same and react to 
others in a similar manner.  In a sense, you are seeing yourself
in a mirror. The attraction is intense. The problem begins 
when you both want to occupy the same space.  There can 
only be one image in the mirror at a time.  This strong initial 
attraction can become a lifetime commitment as soon as the 
two people decide who is the one that will be in the mirror, 
and learn to give and take in the relationship.  The second 
type of love at first sight is when you meet someone with the 
exact birth order position of one of your siblings.  Gender 
makes a difference, it must be an exact match for birth order 
and gender. If the gender is different then you see the person 
in the light of a different gender.  This type of love at first sight 
is not as exciting as the first type, but is comfortable and long 

Prince Harry a Second Born
Prince Harry is the second born.  As a child his brother was 
referred to as the heir and Harry the spare. The Second born 
is sometimes referred to as the middle child, this only applies
if there are three children. In reality, a second child’s 
personality does not need a third child to develop. The second 
child wants to be as different as he can be from his older 
sibling.This is the child that you don’t tell what to do. He is 
usually more athletic than his older sibling who would be the 
better student. At Eton College, Harry’s former teachers said 
he was a weak student but excelled in sports, particularly polo 
and rugby. After school he entered the Royal Military 
Academy becoming an accomplished Apache helicopter pilot. 
On the personal side, he has earned a reputation for being 
rebellious having the press label him a “wild child”. During a 
holiday in Las Vegas he was photographed naked playing strip 
billiards. Marrying an American woman, and one of mixed-race, 
is just another way this second born is showing that he is 
different from his older brother.

Harry’s Girls Friends
It has been reported that Harry has had two significant 
relationships. The first was Chelsy Davy from South Africa, 
this lasted for five years. She was quite an athlete and her 
birth order was the same as Harry’s, a number two.  This 
would have been a natural love at first sight for both of 
them. Obviously they never worked out who would be the 
one image in the mirror.  Harry had a shorter relationship 
with Cressida Bonas of only two years. She was from 
England and of a royal lineage. She was the fifth of the five 
siblings she lived with.  There is a four-year gap between 
Cressida and her next oldest sibling.  This gives her the 
Double birth order of a five/only.  Birth order numbers repeat 
after number four so a five is much like a number one but a 
little less pushy. She gets the Only birth order because of the
time she spent at home while her older siblings were at school. 
Her relationship with Harry was almost the other type of love 
at first sight. Harry does have a firstborn brother, but Cressida 
has a second born sister. Not a perfect match for either of 

Meghan Markle
Harry is now engaged to Meghan Markle. Meghan has a 
Double birth order. She has two older siblings 12 and 15 
years her senior. This makes her a Third born but because 
of the large gap in age from her older siblings she also 
gets the Only birth order. She interacted with her older 
siblings while she was growing up but lived in a different 
household. The Only/Three birth order gives her multiple 
characteristics. The Only side gives her self-confidence 
and a much more adult personality than Harry.  Her three 
side gives her an ability to read people and situations.  
You might say she can easily manipulate people with this 
very strong but subtle double birth order. She likes to be
 center stage and she usually gets what she wants. Her next 
older sibling is a boy and makes an exact birth order match 
with Harry.
Harry and Meghan
Harry must be fascinated by Meghan as he has no idea how 
someone with an Only/Three birth order behaves. He had no
girls in his family and no one in the three position. He cannot
possibly understand her and that may be why he is so 
attracted to her. Meghan has a brother in the number two 
position, this allows her to understand Harry. This gives her 
an advantage. It will take Harry some time to unmask 
Meghan’s real personality.

Marriage Longevity
All birth order combinations can work; some just take more 
work. Understanding your spouse is easier if you have grown 
up with a sibling of the same birth order. For Harry, this is 
going to be difficult, he has no sisters and no third sibling. He
may never understand Meghan.  For her, the prize, her Prince, 
may be difficult to control or manipulate. If she tries to tell 
Harry what to do, it may be the end of the marriage. Having 
an older brother that is also a number two will be very helpful 
to her. For Harry, he will be marrying two people, an Only and 
a Three. This should make things interesting and should keep 
both Harry and Meghan at the top of their game.
