Rural Home Cemetery (Big Flats Burial Association) was organized 13 Feb. 1886. It is the largest and only active cemetery (except for the small cemetery at Mt. Saviour Monastery) of seven in the town. It is well maintained by the Association.

It is located on the south side and almost adjacent to Route 17/Interstate 86. It is bounded on the east by Hibbard Rd and on the west by the Big Flats Elementary School.

The 2000 listing was copied by Town Clerk Teresa Dean and Historian E.R. Van Etten from records courteously loaned  by the Association President, Mr. Duane Hills.

Ms. Tice,
I chanced upon your remarkable web site when, in a spare moment, I happened to think of Big Flats and did a Google search.  Since several of my ancestors are buried in Rural Home Cemetery, including both of my parents (Henry B., Jr., d. 1975 and Eleanor d. 2001) and my uncle (Sam d. 2002), I was naturally drawn to that link.  It is very pleasant to see your many photographs, taken in good weather.  However, I notice that the family name is consistently misspelled as "Miner", that is, missing the second "i".  This is a small thing in comparison to the service you provide, but I thought you might want to know.
