The Dutton Family are the owners of Yellowstone Dutton Ranch, the largest ranch in the United States and still growing. It was founded by James Dutton, a Tennessee farmer who relocated with his family from Fort Worth, Texas to Montana during the Western Expansion, while the caravan was making the trek to Oregon. John Dutton, patriarch of the family, is the seventh generation owner, just like his father before him. John is a widow, his wife, Evelyn Dutton died in a horse riding accident in the late 90's, who he still grieves heavily over. He had four children, his son, Lee, who was meant to inherit the ranch, until he was killed in the attempt to reclaim their stolen cattle from Broken Rock Reservation, his second son, Jamie, an aspiring politician and current Attorney General of Montana, who the Dutton adopted as an infant after his birth father went to prison for killing his mother, his daughter Bethany, a no nonsense banking representative who is willing to play dirty just to protect her family and the legacy they built, and his youngest son, Kayce, an ex-Navy SEAL who married a woman from the Broken Rock Reservation, started a family with her, and resisted the idea of living on the ranch, yet alone, living in his father's shadow.
