```Hello Peter,

I think your (3,2) sequence is alternate terms of A001687 a(n) = a(n-2) +
a(n-5), which starts 1,0,1,0,1,1,1,2,1,3,2,4,4,5,7.  Your terms are sums
of diagonals incident on the first column of the triangle as displayed,
the others sums of diagonals incident on the second.

It seems worth considering whether any other diagonal sums may likewise be
present in sequences as alternate terms (or in other such ways).

Regards,

Peter M
