A Complete Breakdown of The 'Yellowstone', '1883' and '1923' Dutton Family Tree

A master family tree of every Dutton family member featured on 'Yellowstone' and its prequels.

The Paramount Network's hit TV show Yellowstone has created an incredible world centered around the Dutton family and their fight to maintain their Montana ranch, the largest in the country. Yellowstone fans have gotten the chance to see how everything started with the first prequel series that follows the Duttons when they initially settle down in the area. There are now so many Duttons we're following it can be a bit hard to keep track. Now add into the mix the next set of Duttons coming in the next prequel series, 1923. That's a lot of Duttons.

Here's a full breakdown of the Dutton family tree.

1883: James and Margaret Dutton

The Yellowstone prequel series 1883 introduced us to the original Dutton patriarch, James Dutton (Tim McGraw), and his wife Margaret (Faith Hill). Though it hasn't been specifically laid out, we can safely guess that James is meant to be the great-grandfather of Kevin Costner's John Dutton.

1883: Elsa Dutton

Isabel May plays Elsa, the eldest child of James and Margaret, in 1883. She also serves as narrator for part of 1923.

The original John Dutton was just five years old when the Dutton family migrated from Texas to Montana, where they will eventually settle down on Yellowstone Ranch. Audie Rick portrayed the young John in 1883.

In 1923, John works alongside his uncle Jacob, who maintains the ranch after his father's death. He eventually inherits it himself either on or after the time featured in the upcoming prequel series. James Badge Dale played the adult John in 1923.

Yellowstone flashback & 1923: Spencer Dutton

The youngest child of James and Margaret was only seen in flashback episodes in Yellowstone season 4. We never met Spencer in 1883, so we know that Margaret and James welcomed him at some point down the road after settling on the Yellowstone Ranch.

Brandon Sklenar plays an older Spencer on 1923. He has seen the horrors of fighting in WWI and falls in love with a woman named Alexandra before returning home to his family after years overseas.

1923: Jacob and Cara Dutton

Following the death of his older brother James, Jacob Dutton takes over running the Yellowstone. Harrison Ford brings the character to life in 1923 with Helen Mirren playing his wife, Cara, the Dutton matriarch.

The son of John and Emma Dutton, Jack will eventually take over the ranch. He's equally passionate about ranching and maintaining his family's legacy and will even honor his father by naming his son after him.

1923: Elizabeth Dutton

Michelle Randolph stars on 1923 as the feisty Elizabeth, Jack Dutton's wife. We assume they end up having John Dutton II, the next Dutton to run the Yellowstone Ranch.

Yellowstone flashbacks: John Dutton II

Dabney Coleman played John Dutton (Costner)'s father in a flashback episode in Yellowstone season 2. While it gets a bit confusing with continuity that he's credited as being a 'Sr' and so is the young John Dutton we see in 1883, it makes sense if you dig a bit deeper. In some families, once the Sr passes away, the Jr (or II in this case) will become the new Sr. This is most likely how the Dutton family approaches passing down this family name.

We don't know anything about John Dutton II's wife, but we know he had another son besides John III whom Kevin Costner's John mentioned in an emotional scene with Monica in Season 5. His brother, who died in infancy, was named Peter.

Yellowstone: John Dutton III and Evelyn Dutton

Kevin Costner's John Dutton is the current patriarch of the Yellowstone Ranch. He had three children with his late wife Evelyn, who passed away in an accident while riding horses with Beth and Kayce when they were children. The couple also adopted a baby who they raised as their own. Gretchen Mol plays Evelyn in flashback episodes, and Josh Lucas portrays a young John.

Yellowstone: Beth Dutton

Beth (Kelly Reilly) is the only daughter of John and Evelyn and, as of season four of Yellowstone, is married to ranch hand Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser). Though it is revealed that she cannot have children of her own, Beth takes in a teenage orphan named Carter (Finn Little), whom she meets at the hospital at the beginning of season four. It's unclear if he'll officially become part of the family, but he does live in the big house at the ranch with Beth, Rip and John.

Yellowstone: Kayce and Monica Dutton

Kayce Dutton (Luke Grimes) is the youngest of the Dutton children. He and his wife Monica Long (Kelsey Asbille) have one son, Tate Dutton (Brecken Merrill), though it was announced in season four that Monica was pregnant with their second child. Kayce served in the military as a Navy SEAL and fell in love with Monica, a woman native to the nearby Broken Rock Indian Reservation.

Yellowstone: Lee Dutton

The eldest child of Evelyn and John was played by Dave Annable. Sadly, Lee passed away in the first episode of Yellowstone. He was essentially John's number two man and was working towards eventually taking over running Yellowstone Ranch.

Yellowstone: Jamie Dutton

Though raised by John and Evelyn Dutton, Jamie (Wes Bentley) was adopted as an infant. He joined the Dutton family so early in his life, for all intents and purposes, he feels like a true member of the family. Despite all of the drama and occasional disagreements, John still does love him like he's his own son. Though their current relationship is unclear, Jamie has a son with his ex-girlfriend, Christina, who recently came back into the picture after Jamie distanced himself from the Duttons.

Yellowstone: Phyllis and Garrett Randall

In season three, we find out that Jamie Dutton was adopted by the Dutton family. His father, Garrett Randall, actually killed Jamie's birth mother when Jamie was just a baby and served many years in prison.
