Did Kaurs not wear keski back then, in the 1800s?

No the vast majority didn't wear any sort of turban/keski. A Panjabi Dupattā/Fulkari/scarf was the preferred head covering. A long plait, braids or a high or low buns were common hairstyles.

Some of them have jorra near top of their head and covered very well. Besides the keski/turban, The more concerning thing is : 

Why our Bibian does not cover their head. I found that more concerning.

High buns were quite popular in that era. However, that high-bun look here is created with a dome-shaped jewellery known as a Saghi Ful, which was braided and secured in the hair. Married Punjabi women in the past wore this.

Other than covering their head, some Sikh women also wore large white chadors. This practice used to be common in villages till some decades ago. 

These days the push has been towards women wearing turbans. I think many more women would be open to covering their head with scarfs/Dupattā than wearing a turban.
