Vetters aboard the ALLER 1888

I am trying to locate the ship on which my husband's grandmother and her family came to America. She was born c 1862 in Russia, daughter of Adolph Vetter. The closest possible passenger list I have found is on the Aller, which arrived in NYC 01 Dec 1888. Following are the names of two Vetter families in the passenger list:

Name                     Age       Est DOB
Aug Vetter              43       1845
Zanfina Vetter              34       1851
Joha Vetter              ?       1884
Thomas Vetter              13       1873
Rosalie Vetter              13       1875
Magdal Vetter              11       1877
Marga Vetter              9       1879
Anton Vetter              7       1881

Name                     Age       Est DOB
Valentin Vetter       48       1840
Franka Vetter              44       1844
Joh Vetter              13       1875
Baith Vetter              11       1877
Julie Vetter              17       1871
Marga Vetter              13       1875       
Maria Vetter              9       1879

Even allowing for a wide range of spellings it is difficult to make Valentin into Adolph.
However, I would really love to hear from anyone who might be related to anyone on the above lists.
