It was declared the State of Siege in Galicia in 1864 to 1865, after
the uprising started in 1863. Most of the activists were youngsters.

Probably, this might be the explanation.

location of the jail in Lemberg and indicate you found records for
many young men who died in this same place. My GG GF was
actually 74 when he died there but, leaving his age aside, I am
curious whether you (or any other GG members) have any thoughts
about why so many Jewish men were in jail in Lemberg during that time?>>
