Below:  The first article is entitled "Foreign Bodies in the Knee-Joint" and was written by Alph. B. Crosby, AM., M.D.   Dated November, 1856, at Dartmouth Medical College at Hanover, New Hampshire.

The author was Alpheus Benning Crosby, M.D., son of Dixi Crosby, M.D., also one of the collaborators named on the cover.  

From online research, I found that Dixi Crosby was born 7 February 1800 at Sandwich, New Hampshire, son of Asa and Betsey (Hoit) Crosby.  He married Mary Jane Moody, daughter of Stephen and Frances (Coffin) Moody.  Their first child was Albert Harrison Crosby; their second was the above-mentioned Alpheus Benning Crosby, born 2 February 1832 at Hanover, New Hampshire.  Alpheus married Mildred Glassell Smith.  I believe they had three children.

Below:  The second article is entitled "On Inflammation of the Uterus, and Induration and Ulceration of the Neck of That Organ", by George W. Garland, M.D.  Dated September 21, 1856, at Lawrence, Massachusetts.

From online research, I found that Dr. George W. Garland was Dr. George Waterhouse Garland, born 3 January 1813 at Barnstead, New Hampshire, son of Isaac and Lydia (Babb) Garland.  On 7 October 1840 at Brunswick, Maine, George Waterhouse Garland married Elizabeth Bowker, daughter of Washington and Elizabeth (Minot) Bowker.   

At the time of the 1850 Census, he, Elizabeth and their two children were living at Gilford, New Hampshire.  Apparently they had moved to Massachusetts by 1856, as the notation on the cover of this journal suggests.  The 1860 Census of Lawrence, Massachusetts, shows the family living there, with Dr. Garland's occupation listed as M.D.  Daughter Annie Elizabeth Garland married Dr. Cyrus Nathaniel Chamberlain.  Son George Minot Garland became a physician.  George Waterman Garland died 5 May 1881.  

Below: An article entitled "Case of Parotitis in Continued Fever", by S. W., dated November 10, 1856 at Charlestown, New Hampshire.
