I have data that I'm running through pg_escape_sting in php and then adding

can specify the escape but it isn't working for me.  Should this command fix
this double 'single' quote issue when I put it in the db?  And what is the
proper syntax?

AFAIK "copy" takes the csv file and imports it (and handles quotes etc itself).

So just create your file:

First Name, Last Name
Tim, O'Reilly

and when you "copy" that in (without the header line), it'll "just work".
