Benjamin Franklin Kennedy, Buried in Covington, Texas

Classification: Query
Surnames: Kennedy
I have been trying to find where my grandfather is buried and I am hoping you might can give me some information. I recently found his death certificate online and it states that he died in Itasca and his remains were sent to Covington, Texas, for burial. I have checked online the cemeteries in Covington and I cannot find his name listed. Below is the information from the Death Certificate:

Benjamin Franklin Kennedy
Born: July 22, 1869
Died: April 8, 1923
Place of Burial or Removal: Covington, Texas
Date of Burial: April 9, 1923
Undertaker: Brown-Hallman Co., Itasca, Texas
Place of Death: 8 M. N-W of Itasca, Texas

When I was very young, I remember seeing a newspaper article that my Mother had that he had drown in a well when he tried to catch his hat that had blown off his head in the wind. I was hoping you could tell me where to go for information such as a library, courthouse or some other government office. I have been trying to find out something on the Internet, but it appears there may be several cemeteries in Covington, but I cannot find his name in any of them. Any help you can give me would be so appreciated.
