The 1923 patriarch of the Dutton’s and owner of the ranch, Jacob is the brother of 1883‘s James Dutton. Jacob took over the Yellowstone Dutton ranch after James and his wife, Margaret died, taking in the couple’s two surviving children as well. While he and his wife Cara have no children of their own, his relationship to James makes him the great-granduncle of Yellowstone‘s John Dutton.

Jacob’s wife and the unwavering matriarch of the Dutton clan on 1923Cara is related to Yellowstone‘s Dutton family by marriage, and is the great-grandaunt of John Dutton III, who runs the ranch in the show’s modern era.
