Are there any male Burke descendants of John Burke and Elizabeth Osburn out there?

I am searching for the parents of my great-great grandfather, Hiram Burke, (1799 NC - 1882 IL).  Based on the story of a John Burke (abt. 1777 IRE - 1835 TN) and Mary Osburn (abt. 1780 NC - abt. 1840 TN) having two sons, John and Hiram, in North Carolina before 1800, I believe that they may possibly be Hiram's parents. The rest of the story is that Mary died, and the two young boys went to stay with a neighbor.  The neighbor moved and the boys were never heard of again.  John married Elizabeth Osburn (Mary's sister) and they had 10 children.  I also have high confidence level autosomal DNA matches with two of John and Elizabeth's daughters.  I am hoping to find at least one male Burke descendant of this couple, who has either taken a Y-DNA test, or is willing to take one.  I am only interested in solving the mystery of who my great-great grandfather's parents were, so that I can move beyond this brick wall.  Thanks!
