Prudence is missing.  Could we have her birthdate wrong and might she be Daughter C?  Or did the census-taker simply make a mistake?

4.  Family Quest Archives:  Ohio Federal Census 1850: Knox County.  Heritage Quest CD M432-700:  Harrison Twp., Knox Co., OH, p. 401AB, 2486/2546, enumerated 25 Sep 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Benjamin Horn 58 M Farmer 3000 Penn
Anna      " 59 F     do
Hiram Horn 28 M Farmer   Ohio
Anna     " 23 F     do
Prudence " 18 F     do
Benjamin " 17 M   do   do
Mariah   "  6 F     do
Casius Morningstar  2 M     do
Josiah Horn 27 M Blk Smith   do
Washington " 21 M Labourer   do
Because of their ordering in the record, it's doubtful that Josiah and Washington are their children (nephews, perhaps?).  It's also doubtful that Mariah is their daughter because Anna is too old to be her mother, and she cannot possibly be Casius's mother for that same reason.  Young children in the home of a mature couple are almost always grandchildren.

5.  LDS.  Family Search: Internet Genealogy Service: Ancestral File.  Gives Anna's surname as ELY.
