Jack,

I found the article in Alfred Nixon's "The Finger Family of Lincoln County, N.C." 1903, pg. 7. It is:

LEEPER'S CREEK.

Peter Finger's home place lay on both sides of Leeper's Creek, and included what is known as the Goodson and Loftin tracts. This creek is mentioned in the public records as "Leopard's creek," and Lippard's creek," but the proper name is "Leeper's Creek," from the old pioneer, Robert Leeper; who entered a large body of land on this stream above Mariposa. His entry bears date 34d March, 1753.

Hope this clarifies for you and others where Leeper's Creek is located. On the same page describes Lick Run, a tributary of Leeper's creek at Sherrill's Ford crossing. This is sometimes referred to as Leeper's Creek.

Jill
