I researched patents that are in the public domain (late 1800's). If I wanted to incorporate them into my PB illustrations, do I need permission?

I would think so. I know that songs and music lyrics from the 1800s are definitely fair game. It might be worth a call to the Library of Congress or the US Patent Office just to be sure.
