Yes, that all looks correct. The sequence is one conjectured by
Gauss, and finally proved complete (i.e. all of the quadratic
imaginary fields of class number 1 are in that sequence) by Heegner.
His proof, however, was not believed and it was later proved
independently by two different methods by Harold Stark and Alan Baker.
There are related finite sequence of the set of quadratic imaginary
fields of class number k, for various k. I don't remember the largest
k for which the entire sequences have been determined, but I believe
that it's now of the order of 100 (or possibly more).
