Narrowed it down to A and C.

Since you are talking about a date here, you need when. So A it is.

Tough one. Had to choose between A and C.

'date at which' and 'known to have made' sound idiomatic to me.

Would go with C.

Did you get this rule from the "stickys" ?

if "date at which" is ok, C sounds better
