Not that I know of. The Wingfields I'm connected to are in the Humboldt cemetary in Geary county, though others in the family or descendents might be in Ossawatomie. James Lewis Wingfield and his wife, Mary Quarles Wingfield, settled in Geary (then Davis) Co. KS early on and lent the name Wingfield to the township in which they settled. James was born in Bedford Co. VA in 1810 and died in Jewel Co. KS in 1880, but was brought back to Humboldt Creek to be buried. They had several children, one of whom, Ann Leftwich Wingfield, was my great great grandmother. She married Eldridge R. C. Harris and they produced, reputedly, the first white child born in the county, my great grandmother, Louisa Catherine Harris.
