Orphanage in WA?

I am having such a hard time finding information about my husband's grandfather. His parents died when he was about 5 and 7, and he and his brother were sent to an orphanage, but I have no idea where and have not yet been able to find any information to help.

Information about his family that I know:
Charles Matte may have been born 28 Feb 1878 (where?). He married Anna Vaulpey (or Volpe?), who was born 16 July 1885 (where?). They had at least two children, the first being born about 1920, the second, Robert D (my husband's grandfather), was born about Nov 1925 somewhere in Washington state. Anna died in about 1931 in Seattle, King Co, WA. Charles died in about 1933 in Seattle, King Co, WA. Which is when the two boys were sent to an orphanage.
