Samuel Older was born in 1772 and in sussex, England. His son Samuel was b. in Sept. 15,1790 in Wisborough, Green, sussex, England. He was married twice, once in 1812 to sophia turner and then in 1823 to Joanna Hard. She had John Clarence Older in 1834.

I've read that Samuel was married to a Elizabeth before Joanna. I don't know which is correct. Was it Elizabeth or Sofia

Both of these marriages are in the extracted Sussex marriage records. It would be worthwhile to look at the actual records. Is there a death record for Sophia Older before 1823? Does the second marriage indicate Samuel was a widower at his marriage with Joanna? Are there census records that can put some light on the details of this family?

There are a number avenues to be explored.

the find a grave website said Elizabeth, but a relative noted Sofia.
As is common with Find-a-Grave there are no sources for these statements.

Look for a county history for where they lived. There may be a family biography that will offer some clues.
