They aren't the same person. Edward is not Emmanuel's short name.

It says there that Edward "was a seventh cousin to Emanuel
Lasker." However, I am not sure that this site should
be trusted. It also claims that Emanuel Lasker "believed
that one of his opponents, Tarrasch, had hypnotic powers
and wanted to play him in a separate room." It claims
that Morphy "had a fetish with women's shoes", although
this story is now regarded with skepticism by many. It
refers to Morphy arriving "in Paris to play Anderssen"
although that was not the purpose of Morphy's visit to
Paris and plans for Morphy to play Anderssen in Paris
were only formulated much later. It claims that "Steinitz
took 6th place in the London 1851 tournament", although
he was not even at that tournament, being only about 15
at the time.
