Obadiah lived quietly on his farm. He seems to have taken very little part in the activities of Swansea, Massachusetts. In 1727, he was bondsman for J. Kingsley who administered on the estate of Ebenezer Eddy. His name appears as witness on a few deeds and also as a person to whom money is due, when several estates were settled... In all probability, Obadiah lies by the side of his wife, Abigail, who is buried in the Eddy Burying Ground in Swansea. The grave neighboring hers is marked by headstone and foot stone, neither of which has any inscription.[4]
