This link called List of Early Orphanages (mid 1800s-early 1900s)
states Baltimore Orphan Asylum was a Baptist organization. If this is
true, I wonder whether your German ancestor was there. He would have
more likely been at German Orphan Asylum or a Catholic or Lutheran

Another mention of Baltimore Orphan Asylum is at Maryland State
Archives but unfortunately it doesn't look like they have 1880
records, only the 1900 or so records

General German Orphan Asylum was located at 224 Aisquith St., Baltimore, Md.

Anderson, Patricia Dockman. "Inmates of the German Orphans Asylum,
Aisquith St., Baltimore, MD." MGSB 32 (2) 152-155.

MGSB is MD Genealogical Society Bulletin. It is at Md State Archives,
as well as other locations such as Enoch Pratt Library, Maryland
Historical Society.

You did not mention your husband's gggrandfather's name. Did you find
it on an 1880 census at Baltimore Orphans Asylum? That would rule out
German Orphans Asylum or any Catholic or Lutheran asylums
