Texas Orphanages

I am wondering if someone knows anything about where old orphan records may be stored? I had a Uncle whose father was in a orphanage he said was in Houston. He doesn't remember how or when he got there. He was never adopted and must have left when he 18 or so. He was born in 1870. I haven't been able to find him in an orphanage or on any census. The first census I have him on is 1900. I am feeling my way around this orphan thing. He is the first orphan I have tried to research. His last name is Montya and you would think it would be easy. Thanks for any help, DIane Reed
