About the locality:
Bulgarians settle in the village in 1806–1814 (Roman, L. 1984: 143). The 1838 registry of the population records the presence of 73 “Serbian” households (Velichi, C. N. 1965: 114). Bulgarians from Iepureşti actively participate in the 1848 revolution (Velichi, C. N. 1971: 259). In sources dating from the end of the nineteenth century, the residents are described as hard-working “Serbs” who adhere to their traditional garb and customs and do not intermarry with Romanians (Antonescu-Remuşi, P. S. 1890: 118; Lahovari, G. I., C. I. Bratianu, G. Tocilescu 1898-1902 4: 36). G. Weigand visited the village in 1898 and included it later in his atlas as a locality with Bulgarian population (Weigand, G. 1900: 118; Weigand, G. 1909: Map 67). S. Romanski wrote that Iepureşti was “a large village, half of the population of which are Bulgarians stemming from Ruse Region” (Романски, С. 1914: 24). It was established during fieldwork in 1962 that about two thirds of the population was Bulgarian and the dialect was very well preserved.
