Query: MATHIAS/ELGIE of Allen County

The 1910 Federal Census for Wayne, Allen, Indiana (Roll: T624_338; Page: 16B; Enumeration District: 0030; ; FHL microfilm: 1374351.) shows my Grandfather, Elgie [Elzie] A. Mathias, Born 24 May 1902 in Allen, Indiana, as an inmate at the Allen County Orphans' Home. He was 7 years old as listed. 

The Allen County, Indiana Guardianships, 1829-1905 - Results shows a: RICHARD, ELGIE -h. Richard, Geo.C. -g. Richard, Jennie - d. April 29, 1903 -b. 6 -p. 566 -f.b.# 980, and no other Elgie [Elzie]. I don't know if this is the same person!

Key to Abbreviations:
h. = heirs
g. = guardian
d. = date of appointment
b. = book in the bond record
p. = page in the bond record
f.b.# = file box number
et. al. = and others

Where can I look to identify if Eglie was adopted by Mathias, or just committed for conduct.
