Libre Office doesn't seem to be able find peoples' . It WILL find peoples but then it will replace with people's and leave the remaining ' as in people's' . What am I not doing right?

If in AutoCorrect Options▸Localized Options tab replacing quote is enabled, may be the string ' is not the same.

To be sure, select and copy the text (including ') in the document and paste it in the Search For zone.

Many thanks for that. The options were not the problem. It was selecting and copying text which made the difference. I had been typing the text into the search zone.
