7. article: Los Angeles Daily Herald, 15 Oct 1889, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California, USA. An Acquisition to the Bar.

On motion of Judge A. M. Stephens, President of the Bar Association of Los Angeles County, and on the production of a certificate from the Supreme Court of Louisiana, of date May 24, 1870, Mr. Thomas Levin Winder was on yesterday admitted an an attorney of the Supreme Court by the Supreme Court of this

Mr. Winder was in active practice in Louisiana, occupied a high position at the bar and in 1872 was elected on the Democratic ticket as District Attorney of the Twenty-fifth Judicial District of that State. He removed to California and settled in this city last May, and a few weeks after his arrival became associated with Colonel George H. Smith and Judge Henry M. Smith, under the firm name of Smith, Winder & Smith. The firm stands deservedly high, enjoys a large and lucrative practice, and we predict for Mr. Winder a bright and successful course in his adopted home.

Mr. Winder comes of good old Democratic stock. His father's family have always been prominent in the party in Maryland and Virginia, and on his mother's side he is a grand son of Felix Grundy, a lawyer in his day of national reputation, who twice served in the Senate of the United States from the State of Tennessee, a personal and political friend of General Jackson and afterwards Attorney-General of the United States in the Cabinet of Martin Van Buren. It is needless to add that Mr. Winder is a strong defender of the political faith in which he was born and reared, and during the late Gubernatorial canvass in Louisiana was Chairman of the Democratic Executive Committee of the Parish of Terrebonne.

8. cemetery: Angelus Rosedale Cemetery, 1912, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California, USA.
