The Progress-Index History

Profile

The Progress-Index traces its origins to the Index, first published on July 4, 1865. Soon after the fall of Petersburg in April 1865, two local newspapers including The News were supressed by the Union Army. The News was edited by Anthony M. Keiley a well-known public figure, according to the 1960 book, “Petersburg’s Story, A History” by James G. Scott and Edward A. Wyatt IV. Meanwhile, Keiley not only had his newspaper closed, but he was imprisoned for three days in Castle Thunder in Richmond. After his release, Keiley soon started The Daily Index, which began publication on July 4, 1865. The newspaper, which acknowledged not Keiley but D.L. Williams as publisher, had a more conciliatory tone toward the city’s occupation army. In 1871, The Express became The Daily Progress, and in 1872 became The Appeal, which then merged with The Index. The merged newspaper became known first as The Index and Appeal but later The Index-Appeal in 1873. In 1888, Edwin F. Clements founded The Evening Progress. From those early papers only two remained in 1921: the Index-Appeal (1873) and the Evening Progress (1888). The papers made the news when they moved from the old plant on Tabb Street into new offices at 15 Franklin St., our current location. In 1922 The Evening Progress merged with the morning newspaper The Index-Appeal to become a daily evening and Sunday morning newspaper. On Sunday, Sept. 16, 1923, The Evening Progress and The IndexAppeal (the papers had by then combined) was renamed The Progress-Index. The Progress-Index was purchased in January 1997 by Times Shamrock Communications. In May 2004, Cindy Morgan was named publisher, making her the first female publisher in the newspaper’s history. The Progress-Index converted to a seven-day a week morning newspaper on Oct. 3, 2011.

OUR STORY Bland’s Funeral Home was founded on June 15, 1952 by William N. Bland, Sr. and Olivia Elizabeth Hailes Bland, both Licensed Funeral Directors, in Petersburg, Virginia. The first structure, a white framed building, was accented by a white picket fence and a green canopy which covered the area from the porch to the sidewalk. This modest place of business was originally located at 137 Harrison Street. Although the current building has undergone several renovations and expansions, Bland’s Funeral Home has always had the same address. Mr. Bland, Sr. and his wife turned their family-owned business into a landmark for the citizens of Petersburg and surrounding cities and counties.

DEA. & MRS. WILLIAM N. BLAND, SR., FOUNDERS REV. & MRS. WILLIAM N. BLAND. JR... SECOND GENERATION

THIRD GENERATION For us to lead today.....

Bland’s Funeral Home has always opened its doors to the community as a meeting place for African-Americans to address such concerns as Civil Rights, Voter Registration and other local, state, and national issues. Because of its personal touch and superior professional services, the funeral home grew rapidly and rendered first rate services throughout the Tri-Cities area and beyond. Some of the services provided by the funeral include ambulance service (1952-1966), tax and notary services, and most of all, the Bland family continues to provide a heartfelt empathy to each family who has suffered the personal loss of a loved one. In 1975, Bland’s Funeral Home expanded its business to the city of Hopewell by merging with Turner Funeral Home. An ultra-modem funeral home, known as TurnerBland Funeral Home, was established in memory of Mr. Walter Turner, a dedicated Funeral Director and Embalmer in Hopewell, Virginia from 1953-1975.

WILLIAM N. BLAND, III. RODERICK R. GOODE, JR. & NlCKIA BLAND JOHNSON, PRESIDENT

THE FUTURE NASIA Q JOHNSON VICTOR L. JOHNSON, JR.

Bland’s Funeral Home has had a long-standing and outstanding professional relationship with John Tyler Community College and its Mortuary Science Degree Program. Reverend William N. Bland, Jr. and his family have continued to serve with dignity and honor. Rev. Bland has served as an instructor at JTCC and, the Bland family has offered employment to aspiring morticians throughout the states of Virginia and North Carolina. With God’s favor, we, the third generation, will continue to serve the community and state with our funeral services, our distinctive professional and personal touches, and a lifelong commitment to strive for excellence.

E. Alvin Small Funeral Homes & Crematory History

Profile

Alvin Small founded what is now E. Alvin Small Funeral Home and Crematory in 1952 on the Boulevard in Colonial Heights. Since the interstate had not yet been opened, the road out front then carried most of the East Coast traffic and, as was common at the time, the funeral home doubled as the local ambulance service. With help from Alvin’s dad, Edward, two brother, Herbert and Ralph, and several close friends, they set the foundation for what the firm is today. In 1990, Alvin’s nephews, Bryan Small and Louis Smith, assumed management and ownership. Services continue at the same place on the Boulevard and also at another location on Crater Road in Petersburg. There is also a crematory to service needs and special equipment for the cremation of pets. Families in the area still largely embrace a traditional approach with visitations and burials. Many often bring photographs, mementos and artifacts illustrative of a person’s life. A video tribute of personal photos may also be shown and favorite music played rather strictly hymns. Visitations are often a somewhat festive reunion of longtime family and friends. The public setting of the funeral home encourages friends and acquaintances that may be unwilling to visit a family at their home. The mere presence of a visiting friend conveys much to a family. You don’t need a lot to say. Funerals after all are a celebration of a life lived. Those who desire cremation are served by the funeral home’s own crematory, the first in the Tri-Cities. Cremation can be very simple or can be the culmination of a traditional visitation and funeral ceremony. Many people consider their pets to be a part of their families. The funeral home Forever Friends Pet Cremation Service to aid those who have lost pets. Pet caskets are available and separate pet cremation equipment is used. Families continue to be the number one priority for nearly 60 years and counting.

2033 Boulevard, Colonial Heights 3955 S. Crater Rd., Petersburg (804) 526-3400 www.ealvinsmall.com Management/Owner: Louis Smith • Bryan Small Nature of the Business: Funeral Home • Crematory Pre Arrangements • Pet Services Families our number one priority for 60 years & counting. We are now into our second 50 years of professional & courteous service.
