Leepers Creek, Stoney Hill

Where is STONEY HILL in relation to LEEPERS CREEK?

The following land grant recorded in Anson Co. NC records. No. 23 - Leonard KEATON, 315 Acres, Issued April 11, 1752, Book No. 2, Page No. 9. Location: Beginning on the N side of SEAFORDS Creek on STONY HILL.

Another source indicates this as Leopards Creek. It appears as Leapers Creek on the Collet 1770 map, as Leapets Creek on the Mouzon 1775 map, and on todays maps as Leepers Creek. I suspect the "L" looks like an "S" and the F looks like a P, therefore Seafords Creek. Part 3 No. 744 indicates it as Leapards Creek.

Today, Leepers Creek starts in Lincoln Co. and runs southeast into Gaston Co. where it connects ti Dutchmans Creek and then flows to the Catawba River. The 1770 and 1775 maps do not indicate Dutchmans Creek.
