Orphanages in Hawaii early 1900's

Surnames: Hamlin
My grandfather Oliver A. Hamlin was born in 1907 and was in an orphanage in Hawaii... possibly the Big Island. I am told there were 12 children 10 of which were placed in orphanages but I do not know if this is true. My great grandmother was born in Hawaii and my great grandfather was born in Germany. This is all the information that I have. I do not have names other than Hamlin. I have read that many German's in Hawaii "anglicized" their names during WWI so I'm hoping that Hamlin is my grandfather's name and that it wasn't changed while at the orphanage. I am trying to find any information that I can on my great grandparents or any orphanage information.
