1915年噍吧哖抗日事件後,竹頭崎日警為了報復,假借開會之名義,集結十八歲至六十五歲的男丁於現今玉山派出所對面玉山國小旁空地,當地保正想說多一些人會較熱鬧,便把年齡層降至十六歲。後來這些人都遭日軍集體屠殺,當時係先挖兩條壕溝,再使用機關槍進行掃射,現竹頭崎每年農曆6月28日祭祖者,皆當年犧牲的遺族。

After the Tapani Incident in 1915, Japanese police at Jhu Tou Ci, in order to take vengeance for themselves, schemed a sham meeting and gathered male villagers aged between 18 and 65 at an open space near what is now Yushan Elementary School across from Yushan Police Station. The local borough chief lowered the age limit to 16, thinking that it would be more fun to have more people around. As it turned out, those who attended the convocation were all slaughtered by the Japanese army. The Japanese had dug two trenches beforehand, and shot the villagers with machine guns. Now the annual memorial rite is held on lunar June 28 by the descendants of those killed by the Japanese.

根據周宗賢教授《臺南縣噍吧哖事件之調查研究》統計戶籍資料得知,南化區竹頭崎庄於8月6日死亡人數高達185人,8月7日至8月10日皆有死亡人數,尤其8月8日明顯偏高,死亡人數達38人,日軍可能進行第二度屠殺,將8月6日未死亡之庄民屠殺殆盡。
    據《南化鄉風華錄》一書提到玉山村耆老蔡牽先生曾述說,當時日警在進行屠殺時,當地聖王顯靈,忽然跑出兩隻公水牛在打架,很多人圍觀,也有部份的人趁亂跑掉,逃過一劫,不然遭殺害人數會更多人。
    而當地耆老胡文虎也有一說,當地保正告知日本兵要到派出所,通知民眾需前往派出所迎接,原公文內寫明十八歲以上的人需來迎接,當地保正想說多一些人會較熱鬧,便把年齡層降至十六歲,使得這些人都遭日軍殺害。
據當地耆老廖牽口述,噍吧哖事件過後,竹頭崎日警為了報復,假借開會之宜,集結十八歲至六十五歲的男丁於現今玉山派出所對面玉山國小旁空地,實行集體屠殺,挖兩條壕溝,再使用機關槍進行掃射,後來又將年齡層降低至十六歲,使更多男丁遭殺害,現竹頭崎每年農曆6月28日祭祖者,皆當年犧牲的遺族。
