Similarly for A066674, I have extended Donovan Johnson's comparison to 10^6
terms - all three sequences agree to that limit.

>From the Formula section of A035095, there is mention of a long-standing
conjecture from the Wagstaff link, a(n) <= prime(n)^2+1.  

In looking at the Wagstaff reference, I see mention of a conjecture from
Kanold that is equivalent to a(n) < prime(n)^2.  

As I see it, A035095 and A066674 are the same (and A035096= A066675) iff
this Kanold conjecture is true.
