Ridiculously off topic...you will find plenty of period beards.
But, curious how you define "plenty."
The vast majority of paintings from the 18th century (dates would be before 1800) I've seen show boarders men.
I recall reading somewhere of men returning from the frontier saying they took pride in an ability to maintaining proper grooming standards even when exploring the frontier.
