Pernecy is the daughter of Robert Lewis Wheeler and Mariah Campbell. She is the mother of 2 Mann children and at least 10 Hill children including Lulu May (Hill) Campbell.

Her Obituary as printed in The McLeansboro Times - 30 Dec 1909:

"Pernecy Hill, daughter of Robert and Mirah Wheeler, was born in Crook township, Hamilton county, Illinois, December 7, 1837, and died at her home at the same place Dec. 21, 1909, at 1:30 o'clock p. m., age 72 years and 14 days. She professed faith in Christ in 185_? and united with the M. E. church at Concord, with which church she remained a faithful member until her death angel called her away.

Mrs. Hill was united with Jesse Mann in marriage in 1850 (Transcriber Note: the marriage actually took place in 1853), who died in 1858, then she was married to S. P. Hill, who died in 1902. She leaves six children to mourn their loss and seven have passed away.

On Friday, Dec. 17 she took the pneumonia and from the first it was plain to see that she could not survive very long. She bore her suffering patiently and when her departure was nearing, her last words were "going home"."

The obituary above indicates that she had 13 children. So far I have identified 12 of them - 2 by Jesse Mann and 10 by Samuel Porter Hill - of those 12 I have found the burial place of 11 of them. The one I am missing is the oldest daughter from her second marriage, Arabella (Hill) Vineyard who died 1 Jan 1929 in Los Angeles, CA. I assume she is buried in CA but I do not have a location.
