He received a thorough education, studied medicine, and practiced. During the Revolutionary War, he was commissioned First lieutenant in the Maryland Militia in 1776. He was appointed by Congress as a physician and surgeon general of the Northern Department of the U.S. Army in 1780, and served until the close of the war. Afterward, he settled in New York and engaged in the practice of medicine.

He married Margaret Livingston (1749-1823, sister of Chancellor Robert R. Livingston), and they had four children, among them Robert L. Tillotson.

He was a Democratic-Republican member from Dutchess County of the New York State Assembly from 1788 to 1790. He was a member of the New York State Senate from 1791 to 1799. In 1791, he was also a member of the Council of Appointment.
