I can't make out first name
I see Domenico Alborino and Marianna di Angelo
Any guesses on the first name

I am reading "figlio di "furono" Domenico Alborino and Marianna di Angelo"

The word "furono" before the father's name is indicating that the father is dead. I would actually say in this case that both parents are dead because "furono" translates to "were" (plural).

You are very welcome.

(As you probably know, if it had the word “fu” before Domenico's name, this would then indicate that only Domenico was deceased because “fu” is singular.)

Angela, actually I didn't know that ~ I've only seen the fu in singular form so thank you for teaching me that. And thank you too Liviomoreno
