Thomson sisters

I have been told that there were four sisters, all born in the Glasgow area of Scotland:

-  Emma Morell Mackenzie Thomson, daughter of Alexander Thomson, Professor of Theology, Edinburgh University

-  Emily Gertrude Thomson, a member of the Royal Miniature Society who illustrated some of Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll's) works including the cover of The Nursery Alice

-  Helen (Nellie) L Thomson

-  Ann Baldwin Thomson, the only one of the four sisters who married. She died in South Africa.

The four sisters also had a brother:

-  William Alexander East Thomson

[Lesley (Dalrymple) O'Neil, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, great grand-niece of Emma Morell Mackenzie Thomson]


Was the 1917 EPS Exhibition award winner the same person as Emma Morell Mackenzie Thomson?

If you can help me to answer this question or can tell me anything more about the family above, can you please email me so that I can pass the details on to the descendant who contacted me.  Thank you.
