Name of town like Lepekoia in Poland or Lithuania #poland #general #lithuania

A relative wrote a memoir in which he said that his grandmother lived in a town named Lepekoia, I think in Poland, or maybe in Lithuania.  I can't find a town by that name.  When I try googling Lepekoia, besides my relative's memoir, I don't get any town by that name, I mostly get suggestions for alternate spellings, but none of the alternate spellings seem to be names of towns, or at least no town anywhere around Poland or Lithuania.  Does anyone have any suggestion of what town name Lepekoia might be referring to?  The author of the memoir was born in Butrymowce, Podlaskie, Poland in 1886, came to the US as a child, and died in New York in 1961.  The memoir he wrote was found after he died by his son, and published in "American Jewish History" in 1980.  Thanks.
