I never had to do a merge but in the manual it uses INSERT_METHOD=LAST, and it says if you don't specify it the inserts will return an error. (Hope it helps):

When you create a MERGE table you have to specify with UNION(list-of-tables) which tables you want to use as one. Optionally you can specify with INSERT_METHOD if you want insert for the MERGE table to happen in the first or last table in the UNION list. If you don't specify INSERT_METHOD or specify NO, then all INSERT commands on the MERGE table will return an error.

The following example shows you how to use MERGE tables:

CREATE TABLE t1 (a INT AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY, message CHAR(20));
CREATE TABLE t2 (a INT AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY, message CHAR(20));
INSERT INTO t1 (message) VALUES ("Testing"),("table"),("t1");
INSERT INTO t2 (message) VALUES ("Testing"),("table"),("t2");
CREATE TABLE total (a INT NOT NULL, message CHAR(20), KEY(a)) TYPE=MERGE UNION=(t1,t2) INSERT_METHOD=LAST;

I was able to solve this one on my own.  It seems that the merged tables have to have identical primary and key fields.  I had made a mistake in declaring one of those fields.  I shall give moon dancer credit since he had the closest answer.

Thanks guys.
