Photos of Minnie Hopkins' Birthplace

My great-grandmother Minnie Hopkins was born in this house on 9 July 1875. Her parents Joseph Jay and Edna (Wheeler) Hopkins were married in Knoxville in 1870 and had six children between 1871-1879. Two of them died young. The photos are of their home or possibly the home of Edna's parents, Daniel and Caroline Wheeler. Can anyone determine the owner and exact address?

These pictures were taken when Minnie and her brother Charles went back for a visit, probably in the 1940s, as she died in 1952.
