Dr. H. Paul and Florence LaCount, descendants of Charles F. LaCount and Walter E. Atwell families, were born and reared in Porter County. The LaCount family was residents of Morgan Township while the Atwell family was residents of Porter Township.

Paul was educated in the local schools and Northwestern U. Dental School. He practiced dentistry in Valparaiso from 1923-1933 until his death January 30, 1933.

Florence attended our local schools and Ball State University. She retired in 1968 after thirty-three years of teaching in Porter County and Valparaiso Community School systems. She now resides in the home on Chicago Street, Valparaiso, which was purchased by her grandfather, W. T. Atwell, in 1913.

It is at this location where she reared two children born to her and Dr. Paul. Their son, Dr. Delmar Paul LaCount, who like his father was a graduate of Northwestern University Dental School, is a practicing dentist in Valparaiso. He served two years in the Army Air Force during World War II before entering private practice. He and his wife, Peggy Soderling LaCount, are parents of two daughters: Nancy Carole is a graduate of Indiana University and a teacher in special education. Suzanne is a student at Cincinnati University in the School of Design.

Virginia Mae, a daughter of Paul and Florence, is married to Don Valo. She is a graduate of Purdue University and a teacher in Junior High School at Sylvania, Ohio. They have one son, Thomas Scott Valo, who is a student at Ohio State University Dental School.
