Frenchman’s adoption of WWII grave connects Minnesotan to father she never knew
DETROIT LAKES - A man in France has helped connect a Minnesota woman to her father — 70 years later.

Though she doesn’t know the details of why Corriger was in Minnesota, she does know that he researched the French grave he had adopted, which belongs to Richard E. Magnon, and he was trying to track down any descendants.
