A Revolutionary War veteran Ailstock served in the state militia beginning in 1780 when he was around 17 years old, he received a general discharge from the Governor before being called back into service in 1781. It was during this time that he joined the 2nd Regiment under Colonel Holt Richardson and Major Thomas Armistead. Ailstock served for 3 months and 2 days during this time before being discharged, he was then recalled into service again for another 3 months. On October 1, 1832 and recorded to be 70 years, Alistock applied for his pension and at some point in time was granted said pension for his service. In 1849 it was recorded that Ailstock issued a complaint regarding the sum of his pension which was $22.78 a year he was 94 years old at the time.
