Which Hamburg are you talking about? Do you mean the one in Penn? If that is the case, Hamburg Sanatorium in Hamburg PA was a TB sanatorium. There are two Alice Weary's that show up in toe social security death index, one is from Carlisle, PA (born Feb 9, 1915 deceased April 23, 2001). That would fit with Hamburg TB sanatorium.
It would also make sense as Hamburg is in Berks County and your grandparents may actually have met at the TB sanatorium. The almshouse itself is gone, though several paintings of it exist and are considered collectible. I do not know for sure but many times there was cross over between places like tb sanatoriums and almshouses. it's also possible he was transferred away from the alms house if he was thought to have tb.
