Lipscomb County search

I am a historian here in Austin. I hope to make a trip up to Lipscomb in two weeks to look into the death of a man up that way.

All I can find out at this distance is that he is buried at Heart Cemetery near Higgins and that he died in 1935. His name was David Leon Kemp, often just called DL Kemp. Curiously there is no death certificate on file in Texas or Oklahoma.

I would like to know at least the month of death so I can access a newspaper account of the shooting in which he was killed. Is there any way you can access his date of death and confirm where he was shot?

I wrote the courthouse, the county commissioner over in Higgins, and the library at Lipscomb by snail mail last December, but so far no answers, so I'm mystified what actually happened. The shooting is historically significant since Dave Kemp was once the sheriff of Eddy County, New Mexico.

I appreciate any help you can give me!
