Citizenship in less than 5 years? #general

I am trying to find a passenger manifest for a likely relative -- Aran
FELDMAN -- who was naturalized October 4, 1886 in the Superior Court of the
City of New York. I found a manifest (ship -- Kaiser) leaving Hamburg for
Liverpool and then the US on December 2, 1881 that Aran FELDMAN is on. Could
this be the same person -- i.e., could Aran have received his citizenship in
a little short of five years? In other words did the Court check passenger
arrival papers back then to determine if the applicant was being truthful as
to how long he'd been in the country or did they loosely interpret the five
years?
