The fathers name? Could that be short for Alexander? The mothers name is what?

It looks like "Alexon," doesn't it? I would guess that it's short for Alexander, yes. The mother's given name is Mary, but it's hard to make out a couple of letters in the surname. It starts out "Marf" and ends with a "k." None of the names on the document look particularly Italian.
