          Dr. Obadiah M. Kyle was a promising young Beaumonter whose career was interrupted by death in April, 1879. A graduate of New Orleans Medical College, he arrived in the "sawdust city" in 1871, where in Nov. 1872, he married Helen Herring, the daughter of a prominent local family. In 1872, he became a partner in the firm of Vaughan and Kyle, a cotton-shipping brokerage at Sabine Pass. During the 1870s, in conjunction with William and W. P. H. McFaddin, and William and Valentine Wiess, he organized the Beaumont Pasture Company, a 60,000-acre Jefferson County ranch stocking 10,000 cattle in Mid-Jefferson County, and it was upon land owned and controlled by these partners that the famed Lucas gusher was bored successfully in Jan., 1901.
