Shelby County Asylum for the Poor and Insane

Classification: Query
I came across a record from 1880 listing a man, who could likely be my great-great-grandfather as a patient at the Shelby County Asylum for the Poor and Insane. He was designated "insane"; however, if it is the same man, he got out and went on to have a family. What are the chances that a person would leave the asylum behind and start a family (in the same city), and where would one begin looking for records about such a place?
