1 female 20-29 1800-1810 = Catherine (b. 1804) 
The teenager is too old to be their child; he could be kin or hired help.

4.  1850 Census Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #509 of 731):  District 140, Green Twp., Summit Co., OH, p. 16B, 3127/3150, enumerated 22 Nov 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
John Castetter 45 M Carpenter 3200 Penn
Catharine Castiter 46 F     Do
Mary Castiter 14 F     Ohio
Samuel Castiter 10 M     Do
Susannah Castiter  8 F     Do
Daniel Castiter  5 M     Do
Elizabeth Castiter 20 F     Do
Emanuel Castiter  ? M     Do
Whatever Emanuel's age was, it was a single digit, probably 1 or 3.  The question here is whether Elizabeth is out of order deliberately or mistakenly.  If deliberately, it indicates she is not their daughter a niece or widowed daughter-in-law, perhaps and that Emanuel is Elizabeth's son.  If Elizabeth is out of order inadvertently, then it is no stretch for her to be our subjects' daughter as they had a daughter in that age class in the household in 1840.  Also, Catharine is not so old that she couldn't be the mother of Emanuel.
