Any OH orphanage/s for Civil War orphans? Harold MAXWELL or Allan Burton CHAPMAN

Just today I learned circuitously and serendipitiously that ancestry.com has this venue for civil war soldiers' orphans and that 2 categories were that PA had its own from I think 1862, and shortly after a sort of national civil war orphanage for both north and south in PA. So mightn't OH have had a similar state orphanage or system?

We''ve long searched for family for Mystery Grandpa Allan Burton CHAPMAN whose birth name may well have been Harold MAXWELL, born 1864. He consistently claims born in OH as were both parents - whoever they were. It's possible his father's given name was John. ABC attended WRA in Hudson, Summit Co. OH 1878-1881 and that's the earliest documentation found so far. Either someone had disposable income to pay his tuition books room & board or now a new thought -- a scholarship (at 14!) for a civil war orphan from the even-back-then liberal Western Reserve Academy.
