Considering that that were plenty of states where Humphrey did better than Kennedy, I'm sure there were plenty of counties.  Click on "Election Results" on the top of the page.

Humphrey carried Maine and Washington, which Kennedy had lost.  In the case of Maine, JFK won only two counties, but HHH lost only four counties.  In HHH's home state of Minnesota, there were several, along with the area around his birthplace in northeastern South Dakota.  I think there were also a few such counties in Iowa, and several other places.

Several African-American majority counties in the Deep South.     Claiborne County, MS for example (went from 20 to 61%).

Humphrey had a higher margin of victory in some rural outer South counties. Some examples...
Elliot County, KY:
D+37.4 in 1960
D+39.9 in 1968

Coal County, OK:
D+11.0 in 1960
D+13.1 in 1968

Mason County, KY:
R+15.8 in 1960
D+1.7 in 1968

Anti-Catholicism at play maybe?

I’d think so. As evidence, Menifee County, Kentucky, was carried by McGovern in 1972 by about nine points, but voted for Hoover in 1928 (one of only three occasions any of Kentucky’s eight McGovern counties went Republican before 2000) by seven votes. Floyd County, which McGovern won by 10 points, Smith only won by 5 points. Logan County, West Virginia, was the only county in that state to vote for McGovern, but also went for Hoover in 1928. So even if muted by unionisation, there was some anti-Catholic sentiment in coal country.
