Freakishly long beard cdv.

Waist length (plus) beard on a man with a long frock. I've tried to discern whether this man might have been a member of the Oneida community in Oneida, NY. The cdv was taken by O. A. Hollenback who did take photos for the community in 1863. I've scanned stereographs and the Oneida community collection of Syracuse University looking for a man with a 3ft. beard, but could not find him in any photos. That said, imagine you have a freakishly long beard and unusual attire, would it not be likely you are a member of a progressive commune in the same town?
