Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Polycarp, Hippolytus, Origen, Tertullian - those are a few.

(They are deceased now.)

Later on there was Basil, his brother Gregory, and his other brother Gregory.
What about Darryl?

Seriously though, all this talk about a rock? Hmmm, I might want to get on that, lol

What about when 2 or 3 were gathered in His Name, was that not the beginning of the Church, since He was there with them?

No.

What's the difference? The Holy Ghost was not given until the day of Pentecost had fully come.

So without the Holy Spirit, there really isn't a Church. I think this is a pretty good guideline ...

I agree, Peter is no more important a stone in the building of Jesus church than the least of all ..
Eph 2:19-20 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,

Rev 21:14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Paul says that the apostles (and Peter was an apostle) are the foundation of the Church and that their names will be written on the foundation of the New Jerusalem.

That is hardly the "least of all."

I agree and Luke 9:48
