The name is this record is blurry and very hard to read, but it certainly could be Angeline/Angelina BRASHEARS.  As for the adult male in the record, he's very likely a boarder, but in any case, he's clearly not head of household or the record would be in his name.

3a.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #74-75):  Washington City (Ward 4), DC, Roll M432_56, pp. 248B-249A,392/406, enumerated 15 Jul 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤()
Ann Carrico 28 F       Md

Mary E Carrico  9 F       Md
Joane     "  7 F       "
Frances Oneal 16 F       "
Mary and Joane/Josie are using their stepfather's surname.  Based on other records, Angelina has shaved a few years off her age and her daughters' ages, which is fairly typical for a woman her age seeking a husband.  The "age deflation" here is further supported by the fact that Mary got married in 1853.  Daughter Catherine is missing and presumed deceased.

3b.  1850 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Widower John G. HOYE (æ 53, b. MD; tailor) is living alone in Aquasco Dist., Prince George's Co., MD (Roll 295, p. 46).

4.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #140 of 560):  Washington (Ward 4), DC, Roll 101, p. 142, PN 28, 182/198, enumerated 5 Jun 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤()

James       "  2 M         "
James A.N. JIRDINSTON is Angeline's son-in-law, who appears to be widowed because the 20-year-old daughter of Angeline has to be Josie, whom we know is still living and marries in 1862.
