Obie was the son of a college professor and spent most of his childhood in Bethany, West Virginia. He entered Bethany College; but even though he was a good student, he did not care for the academic life. After attending the 1876 Centennial Celebration in Philadelphia, he set out to Washington Territory. He went first to Port Townsend, the "Big City" of the day (Seattle's growth came later) where he learned about some good land being available on Orcas Island.

He was among the first settlers in the Deer Harbor area. Later he married Sarah Cadwell, the youngest daughter of fellow island pioneer Wm. Cadwell. Obie and Sadie raised nine children at their home. The family farm primarily fed the large family; their cash crop was apples. The old orchard with Kings, Snow Apples, Crab Apples, and others, was still producing apples in the mid 1950's although the fruit was now just enjoyed by friends and family.

In 1898 he was elected San Juan County Auditor. Other public service included serving as a Justice of the Peace.
