Dr. Wheeler has a biography online at the Profiles of African-Americans in Tennessee website.  According to the bio, Dr. Wheeler and her young child Joseph moved to Nashville in the early 1900s.  She graduated from Meharry in 1905 and also got married that same week to Dr. John N. Wheeler; moving to Chattanooga shortly thereafter.  Dr. Emma Rochelle Wheeler lived in Chattanooga for essentially the rest of her life, though, died in 1957 back in Nashville at Hubbard Hospital, the hospital associated with her alma mater, Meharry. 

Meharry has some of their catalogs online and they include 1905. Here, we find Dr. Wheeler Howard listed among the graduates.
