What is ' and why does Google search replace it with apostrophe?

In what language does and – hash – three – nine – semicolon (') represent the apostrophe? I had some website data extracted in JSON format where some of the user comments had apostrophe which were replaced by '.

So, what representation it is? I can not even google it as Google searches for apostrophe and not for and – hash – three – nine – semicolon.
