Let the entries in the nine columns of Blair and Henze's Table I (JACS 54 (1932), p. 1098) be denoted by Ps(n), Pn(n), Ss(n), Sn(n), Ts(n), Tn(n), As(n), An(n), T(n) respectively (here P = Primary, S = Secondary, T = Tertiary, s = stereoisomers, n = non-stereoisomers and the last column T(n) gives total).
Then Ps (and As) = A000620, Pn (and An, Sn) = A000621, Ss = this sequence, Ts = A000623, Tn = A000624, T = A000625. Recurrences generating these sequences are given in the Maple program in A000620.
