TB "Consumption" homes 1860's Sanilac Co

Is there any reference to locations of particular "homes" (similar to sanatariums of the early 1900's) for TB patients in the mid 1860's? My GG Grandmother Martha Carney Perkins died July 1869 age 27 years suffering from TB. She is buried in Port Sanilac, and there is no close family, or other relatives who lived there or are buried in Port Sanilac. Death record says she died in Harbor Beach, Huron County; her husband Harvey P. Perkins is recorded living in Huron County in 1870 census. He remarried in Dec 1870 RAchel Lynn and lived almost his entire life in Harbor Beach and is buried in Rock Falls. I am at a loss to understand or find a reason for Martha to be buried in Port Sanilac, 30 miles south of Harbor Beach. Any suggestions or help will be very much appreciated. My thoughts are that Martha spent her time after diagnosis and prognosis in a "home" in Port Sanilac, and she actually died there, and so she was buried there. Thanks. ER
