'Dialect' grammar question

My grammar sources, oddly enough, do not have the answer I seek. At least not that I can tell.

If one were spelling words wrong to indicate dialect, and putting apostrophes at the end of the word (ie cryin') and the word falls at the end of a sentence, would the punctuation go before or after the apostrophe.

In other words, which is correct:

a) I couldn't hear over all the cryin'.


b) I couldn't hear over all the cryin.'
